Hello to all,

Thanks for reading my post.


Sample sentence:

Soon a ring of monstrous explosions 50 miles wide will be spewing molten rock and burning gases across the landscape. Certainly within a hundred miles of Yellowstone there won't be much that <is not><won't be> destroyed. High in the atmosphere the ash cloud will surround the planet, sending temperatures plunging.

Question:

Do my proposed options both work?


Thanks a lot for any comments, corrections or suggestions!

Regards,
JJXR

    I think they do. I find "is not destroyed" a little easier to understand correctly after "there won't be much". I don't think you need another contraction of "will not" after you have used it once before in that sentence.
