    Hi

    Ways of expressing Future Tense:

    1. He will come soon. [ future simple]
    2. He is coming soon.[ present continuous]
    3. He is about to come soon.[ be about to]
    4. He will have come by the time you arrive there.[future perfect]
    5. He comes soon.[present tense]


    All the other sentences are correct.
