    Will arrive/Going to arrive

    Journalists insisted that most tourists ____ from the beginning of the Edinburg ArtsFestival which takes place throughout August.

    A) will arrive B) had arrived C) would arrive D) are going to arrive

    I think A/C/D may work, I'd like to know which to pick and why it is that, thank you.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Are you sure there is a full stop before the word "from" in the original?

    Thanks for editing it. It is a very poor question. An argument could be made for all four choices! Where did you find the question?

    Our teacher gave us examples of questions that can be in a test.

    Re: Will arrive/Going to arrive

    Well, I sincerely hope that question doesn't appear in any test you take. If I had to answer it in a test, I'd choose (C) but I would have no idea which answer the test-maker was looking for.
