    Will/would

    Q8 - I'm really not sure whether I ____ be free tomorrow.
    will
    would

    Correct me if I am wrong, but would is used to describe uncertainty (in future or past) where as will is used for more certainty. The sentence here shows uncertainty, yet the correct answer is the word will. Why?

    Thank you!

    Uncertainty is well-established by the words 'I'm really not sure'.

    "Whereas" is one word.
