Can I have the option between you and me, I doubt whether he will come?

I think the correct idioms are between you and me and doubt whether.

I believe that you use doubt that in the negative form. I don't doubt that he'll come.

IMO E

'doubt that' is used when doubt is used in negative context
ex: There is no doubt
otherwise doubt whether or doubt if is used

OA is "C".

OE: After the preposition between the pronouns should be in the object form and so we need me and not I. After doubt the simple future tense is correct.

I got this one wrong :( . Was torn between C and D and picked D for uncertainity.

I understand why C is correct . The word doubt itself entails uncertainity. So usage of will is perfectly fine

C

between you and i or between you and me?

me is the object and i is the subject. In this case we need an object, hence "me".

whether is used to consider options so E is gone.

simple present tense, i doubt that he will come is required in this case.

d) i doubt that he would come.

conditional is wrong in this situation since we are discussing the future from the present situation in present not the future situation in past from past.

Hope that makes sense? lol

i am always confused in this type of question. now its a bit clear to me. is object form always used after "between".... please shed some light. another thing is that. i know "would' is used in hypothetical situation and past form of will. but if i say, i would do that or would you like to have some coffee. is that wrong??
