everyone! I've come across this question in a textbook that does not have any answer key, unfortunately. Here is the question: Complete the sentences with the correct form of will or going to: My brother _____(not go) to university any more. He ___________(work) for a charity in Africa. I think it's won't and going to as answers Could anyone help me? Sorry for my bad English! Thanks in advance!
For the first, won't is suitable. Here we need refusal, which is a special usage of auxiliary verb will.
Consider the another example of this usage, the door won't open.
(1) My brother won't go to university any more. He is going to work for a charity in Africa.
Instead of will, we use is going to, because he has a plan about a charity in Africa.
(2) Consider past tense :
My brother would not go to university any more. He was going to work for a charity in Africa.
Here was going to means both plan and not fulfilling. Hence (1) is more natural
