    B. We often use ‘unless’ in
    warning.
    We’ll be late unless we hurry
    (except if we hurry)

    C. Unless can mean ‘if..not’

    Don’t tell Annie what I said unless she asks you (if she doesn’t ask you)
    We’ll be late unless we hurry (if we don’t hurry)

    D. When we are talking about the future, we do not use ‘will’ after ‘unless’, it’s only for a present tense.
