How are you meant to distinguish an 'eler' verb like appeler from an 'eler' verb like 'geler' which follows a different pattern?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate -eter and -eler verbs in Le Présent - main rule (ll / tt)"

If I may recommend a little inexpensive book of French verb conjugation called Bescherelle (Hatier).
I have an old version called 'La conjugaison 12000 verbes' which is a very useful companion when you have a little doubt. It also group together verbs which are conjugated in the same manner which is very useful.
Most French school students have one proving that it is not easy for them either...
Or, as a complement, you use this website to check the conjugation of verbs:

I did , and it gives a different answer to the test question "'They will call thier son Drongo"' Kwizig answer: "'Nous appellerons...'' Verbix conjugation; Nous appelerons" I see that for appeler you use a double l in the present and there is not the option of e acute and one l . No mention of this also applying in the simple future. Isnt the rule for the simple future infinitive plus avoir endings? ie appeler + ons = appelerons?
Kwiziq is correct ...
The rule is -
In general verbs in -eler and -eter double the 'l' or 't' in front of a silent e:
Je jette and J'appelle.
Nous appellerons is correct ....

If you want to drill some of the common verb conjugations: https://www.memrise.com/course/131350/learn-french-conjugation/
I found this really useful (it's free). You can also make your own SRS flashcards for conjugations not included, like ones you encounter in books or on kwiziq.
But basically, just a lot of reading and listening so you will encounter conjugated verbs over and over again and hence learn their conjugations.
