    Hi abdmlkbd

    Try,

    Will you or would you?

    ___________________

    will, would Often confused. Use will when expressing a certainty. Use would when noting that something is conditional, that it will happen if something else happens first. The stadium will cost $362 million means the stadium has been approved by taxpayers, or the stadium board is omniscent and knows it will be approved by taxpayers (a real leap of faith). The stadium would cost $362 million means taxpayers haven't decided yet if building the stadium is worth $362 million. See can, could.



    Also, beware of saying something will happen unless you have total control or a crystal ball: The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. or The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., not The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. They plan to leave on Friday, not They will leave on Friday.

    Re: Please Help

    If i get it right you just want to know the use of will and would;
    In a situation will,is in the future,and it is used as kind of determined form,like yes you so convinced that this will be it.
    would is in a way of a passed tense,like,you can use it as;
    would:he said,he would be going tommorrow.
    will:i will be the president of canada.
    see how..?
