It's the First Conditional (real possibility), so 'will'.

Thanks, initially thought as Long as the front is in past tense the second part will naturally be past tense but
In this case it is likely to happen so probably should be will.. Now I understand thanks so much

Hi all,
How to join the following 2 sentences with "unless" in the middle?

The patient needs this operation. It is the only thing that will save her life.

Thanks.

If the answer 【red color】 is correct for this S&T:

I adore this cute toddler. He is my neighbour's son.

This cute toddler, whom I adore, is my neighbour's son.

TIA

Yes. 'Whom' is the object of 'adore'.

'Who' would be used:
I adore this cute toddler, who is my neighbour's son.

Thank you very much Joy. BTW, if the two commas in the sentence can be omitted? I mean if the following option is correct too?
This cute toddler whom I adore is my neighbour's son.

Strictly speaking, the commas should be kept as 'whom I adore' is non-restrictive; that is, it is non-essential information to identify the antecedent 'toddler' because 'toddler' is already identified by 'This'.

The first one is correct: 'attended' is the past simple tense transformation of 'did not attend'.
