    Hi!

    What is the correct verb tense for the following sentence?

    I doubt that the manager ------------here tomorrow.

    a] will be b] would be c] is d] were
    Is the verb doubt usually followed by subjunctive?

    Should it be "b" ?

    I think the best answer is "B".
    the key word is "tomorrow"
    can you get it ?
