Cevap: Future Simple or Future Continuous Tense?

won't + infinitive (except when used as part of the ordinary future simple, shall/will) usually implies that the subject refuses to perform a certain action. The negative future continuous tense merely states that a certain action will not take place.
Put the verbs in brackets into the appropriate future form, using won't + infinitive or the future continuous negative. (Where other future forms are also possible this will be noted in the key.)

2 He (not meet) her, because they will be in different places.
