(Are the three sentences the same?)

asked by rfvv
  1. Essentially #1, 2, 3 all mean the sema thing. I will = future. I shall = not used as frequently and could imply more determination, I intend = present tense as it is your thought.

    #4, 5, 6 = "will" is future, "shall" is also used, just not requently. The difference between #5 and 6 would be the subject (you vs. he)
