passive or active?

-1

Please help me to understand which variant is correct:

 

...see how the value will be changed during ...

or

...see how the value will change during ...

 

It'd be great if you provide a reference to the grammar rule for this case or explain a little. Thanks.

Xen, 

 

Both of these sentences are correct.  The first is an example of future passive.  The second is active.  In general, active voice is the better, clearer, and preferred option.

 

There are a lot of resources in our Facebook Discussions about Passive vs. Active Voice.  Here is the link to the discussion.

 

I hope this helps!

you are using verb to be and another verb after that. The second is the absolute correct.
