Why have used "will (won't)" in the "if-clause" of the following sentence? What's wrong with "are not"?

If a couple of my friends won't be able to come, I will probably put the party off.

Hello respected teachers,

Is "create" used intransitively in the following?


One of the interesting things about this project is that the owners – both professionals but not architects – wanted to be closely involved so they decided to manage the project themselves.

Their chief aim was to create somewhere that was as environmentally-friendly as possible. But at the same time they wanted to live somewhere peaceful – they’d both grown up in a rural area and disliked urban life.

Hello respected teachers,

My grammar book says the following is wrong:

What time will your train leave tomorrow?


And it should be:

What time does your train leave tomorrow?


Why?Brick wall

Hello respected teachers,

What does "on the two eyes" mean in the following?

Composite portraiture (also known as composite photographs) is a technique invented by Sir Francis Galton in the 1880s after a suggestion by Herbert Spencer for registering photographs of human faces on the two eyes to create an "average" photograph of all those in the photographed group.[1][2]
