    In chapter ten, there/ it (-) will be added

    Hi,

    1- In chapter ten, there will be added a biography of Shakespere.
    2- In chapter ten will be added a biography of Shakespere.
    3- In chapter ten, it will be added a biography of Shakespere.

    I have a sentence in my language but I cannot change it into english. Which one is grammatically OK? I am sure that sentence 1 is OK, but I am not sure of sentence 2. I think #3 is wrong.

    Thank you.

    You are right that sentence #3 is incorrect. The other two are OK.

    ... but not natural. More likely would be [see how odd that inversion sounds?}

    1- In chapter ten, a biography of ShakespeAre will be added.
    2- In chapter ten a biography of ShakespeAre will be added.

    The focus comes first. So a better way of saying 'More likely would be' would be 'These would be more likely'. (The inverted form is not wrong, but the straightforward way - with the focus as the subject, and expressed first - is usually clearer.)

    Have you considered

    'A biography of Shakespeare will be added in chapter ten'?

    It's important to use the correct spelling of Shakespea​re.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, I have heard that he spelled his name several different ways.
