Future Perfect Tense

Identification: when the work is not completed but will be completed in future. The difference between future perfect and future continuous is that in future continuous, there is no surety about work being completed. It will be done—but in future perfect, it will be completed by the subject. In the future, the subject will be able to relate it through present perfect—I have. The time of the sentence is past.

1. I shall have gone to work at 9 A. M.

3. My friends will have come to my home by then.
