A student of mine showed me the following example questions (sorry if they offend anyone...but i want to post them exactly as he showed them to me). I have a question about the use of "would" and "will":
1. Are there any exercises that would help me lose weight from just my thighs?
2. Is there any way his voice will change and he will stop looking feminine?
In the first question, either 'would' or 'will' sounds fine to me, but in the second one, only 'will' sounds correct. In both questions, the speaker seems to be talking about imaginary situations, so why does 'would' sound strange in the second question? Perhaps the word 'way' conveys a more definite and specific feeling?
