Hi,

1-"I wish my brother would return tomorrow, my mother...... be happy."

a- will     b- would   

I think (would) is correct, yet one of the books chooses (will). I think we can use (will) if we use a fullstop instead of the comma.

"I wish my brother would/could return tomorrow. My mother WILL be happy."

The usage of the comma here is wrong. See Gustavo's comment here:

You can say:

1. I wish my brother would return tomorrow. My mother will be happy (if he comes back).

2. I wish my brother would return tomorrow. My mother would be happy (if he came back).
