Why only 1 correct and not 3?

Hi. For Le Père Noël viendra..you accept only Santa will come..as the correct answer. Why not also Santa is coming and Santa is going to come as they all express future happenings in English ? 

Cheers,

Hi Pekka, 

Le Père Noël viendra Santa will come

Le Père Noël va venir Santa is going to come 

The first one is in the future and the second in the near future, two distinct competencies.

Take a lot at the following Kwiziq lesson which explains the difference but there are many other lessons.
