The following dialogue is part of a TOEIC test I am editing:
W: Good afternoon, sir. What seems to be the problem? M: Well, all of my joints are aching, and I think I have a fever. W: Have you registered at the front desk? M: Yes, I have. And they sent me here. W: Okay. Please give me your health insurance card and wait outside until your name is called.
The following is a question asked about the dialogue:
What would the man likely receive right after being called?
The answer is, "A temperature examination."
I feel that "would" should be changed to "will" as we are asking about a prediction, even if the text isn't about a "real" situation. I also feel that the word "likely" is used which to me is asking for the prediction use of "will."
My question: Is "would" acceptable?
