Hi.

If it .... tomorrow we ... on a picnic.

I chose rains , shall not go

But my teacher-book said rains , don't go

Which is correct?
Thanks all teachers on UE.

'Don't go' is not impossible, but 'we shall go' is what we'd normally expect - or the more common 'we will go'.

ps (later). Sorry, ulya. I meant 'we shall not go, 'we will not go'.

I must say that I prefer the OP's "we shall not go" to "we shall go" (in this context) unless, 5jj, you are particularly keen on having picnics in the rain! ;-)
