Using avoir in future anterior

Why is this incorrect? 

They will have been experts in their field

Elles auront été .....

When I click on 'explain this' I see conjugation of avoir in future anterior. But the question said I should use être not avoir. One of the examples given has the same construction. Why cant I use avoir? I'm confused now how to form ' will have been. Advice appreciated 

Thanks

Hi Sally,

'Ils auront été ...' is correct as both the verbs être and avoir take 'avoir 'as auxiliary verbs -

Elle aura été 

Nous aurons eu 

This looks like it is from a quiz, so the best way is to re-post your query using the Report It button on your correction board which will link directly to the said quiz so we can look at it.

Hope this helps!
