Hi Teacher,

A fee ................ ( charge) if you don't have enough money in your account. (complete the sentence in the correct passive form).

Does this sentence express a rule set by the bank or it is something likely to happen in the future?

1- will be charged or is charged

which answer is correct ? Thanks in advance.

Hi Rak Han,

It could be either one! Both options make sense. The sentence could be talking about a general rule for all customers (A fee is charged ...), or about a particular customer or occasion (A fee will be charged ...).
