I was writing a paragraph where I had to include two questions. They are (not exactly):
Will you reject the offer? Or would you rather embrace it knowing it is to your advantage?
It is for sure "would" in the second question, but since I have stated the first question with "will", I thought it would be more grammatical for both questions to be in the same tense, so it would be either "would" or "will".
However, the first question doesn't sound very properly with "would", and I think the reason is that it has some determination in it, and because it refers to a doing that may be taken in the near future.
I have searched for a question with "will + rather", but it seems that they can't be combined together; why?
According to the Oxford Dictionary, would rather is used to indicate one's preference in a particular matter.
And rather means to a certain or significant extent or degree.
- Which doesn't indicate a low possibility as to attach it with "would".
