He asks where his uncle(will/would)the following week

Which is more appropiate?

Original Post

Ahmed55, please note that there is an infinitive missing after will/would. Please check your source. I suppose it might be be or go.

If the reporting verb (in this case "asks") is in the present tense, there is no backshifting in the sentence that is being reported. Imagine this convesation:

A. Where will my uncle be the following week?
B. What does A say?
C. He asks where his uncle will be the following week.

Ok..thanks .... so the answer in this sentence will be is planning

She wants to know if he ( was planning - is planning) to go to Turkey the following 

Ahmed55, please remember to italicize or quote words or phrases when you refer to them:

- ... so the answer in this sentence will be is planning

- ... so the answer in this sentence will be "is planning"

I would've said: "... so I guess/suppose the answer in this sentence will be is planningright?"

The answer is yes. There is a word missing at the end of your new sentence, however:

- She wants to know if he is planning to go to Turkey the following week/month/year.
