Should "We will leave..." count? Sometimes these kinds of substitutions seem acceptable in the software but not others. I can't tell if this is because not all possible answers could be programmed in, or if there's an intentional need to separate the two on this one.

I have the same question. I'm not sure I understand the distinction in this case. But they often provide alternatives, so I am curious as to why this is so specific.

Should "...leaving at twelve." not be an acceptable answer as this is a common abbreviated form?

what's wrong with "we will be going"?
