    "When will the results be out?" and "when will be the results out?"

    "When will the results be out?" and "when will be the results out?"

    Is it grammatically correct to use be as in the first sentence? I'll be happy if you also give a little explanation.

    Thank you.

    Re: "When will the results be out?" and "when will be the results out?"

    Only the first is correct.
    "When will you be ready?" Right
    "When will be you ready" Wrong
    etc.

    But:

    Explanation will certainly be appreciated.

    Here, both the above sentences are correct. Isn't it? Or is it only the second sentence?

    Thank you.

    The first two sentences were questions, and the problem was the position of the subject. In the two sentences above, we are looking at the position of the adverb in a sentence that is not a question.
