Hello. Are the sentences 'More and more people are joining our club these days' and 'The train will leave in 10 minutes' correct?
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
And are 'The train leaves in 10 minutes' and 'More and more people join our club these days' also grammatically acceptable?
As long as they fit the context, yes. They are grammatically correct.
Hm. Then which options would you consider the most suitable (without given context)?
1.More and more people .... our club these days.
a)join b) are joining
2. The train .... within 10 minutes.
a)is leaving b)leaves c) will leave
(No, it is not my homework.)

This is an artificial exercise, because we almost never utter anything without some context. However:
I'd probably go for 1.b.
All three options are possible and natural in the second sentence.
