When are will and shall used?
Traditionally, Shall is used with the first person pronouns (I and We) and Will is used with the second and third-person pronouns (he, she, It, and they). However, when expressing something certain, will can be used with the first person pronouns and shall can be used with the second and third-person pronouns.
