This question was sent in by Sehoon.

By the time I go to bed tonight, I ___ my work for the day.

a. will finish b. have finished c. will have finished d. finish

---->Answer Key is "c. will have finished."

Is "will" also correct if "will" express willingness?

Thank you very much, Have a good day!
Original Post
"Will" does express willingness, it is true. However, in this sentence, the key phrase is "by the time I go to bed tonight." With "by the time" referring to the future, the tense has to be the future perfect: "will have finished."
