would it be work?

This phrase is incorrect. The structure is not grammatically accurate in English.

it would be work?

This phrase is also incorrect. The structure is not grammatically accurate in English.

The correct form is "Would it work?" when asking about the possibility of something happening or functioning.

Alternatives:

  • Would it work?
  • Will it work?
  • Could it work?
  • Might it work?
  • Is it going to work?
Both phrases are incorrect. The correct form is "Would it work?". The modal verb "would" is used to form polite requests or to ask for advice, and it should be followed by the base form of the main verb, in this case, "work".
