If conditional

Postby Hussein » Wed May 24, 2017 5:58 pm

If people eat too much, they ________ sick.

1⃣ get
2⃣ will get
3⃣ bOth

Here I'm talking in general, however it's not a fixed rule or something like habits.

Any comment is welcome and would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Both grammatically possible, but #2 is appropriate for a general statement.
