    In the first of these posts the model sentence is wrong.

    I will carry out a deal tomorrow ,but when i meet you later tomorrow,I will not think that you know i did (tomorrow/the same day)

    However, the answer is almost certainly I did it the same day.

    "Whatever day I meet him next week I'm sure he will tell me Todd is doing it on that day."

    "Whatever day I meet him next week I'm sure he will tell me Todd is going to do it the following day/the next day."

    "Whatever day I meet him next week I'm sure he will tell me Todd did it the previous day/the day before."

    Does 'which' refer to (tomorrow/the same day)?

    I mean could ...has a distinct meaning from can so it shouldn't have to change in the future rite...could puts an emphasis on a hypothetical situation if i am not mistaken

    Why use either, Gdonuts? These are grammatical to my mind but they are mindbenders.

    I suppose if there was a storyline, a context, then they would make more sense. As it is, I think I can figure it out but I just don't see any need to add the time adverb.
