Hi, I'm trying this test, and I think "disapears" is correct.
I hope, my version is right.

You have to look at the question in context of the whole test, Kaimun.

When you look at the test you will see that the questions are inter-related and the question refers to the sun. The only answer that makes sense here is 'disappears'.

Note the spelling of 'disappoints'.

What does "you'll have to be quick" mean there?
Thank you in advance

It's literal.

The question is part of a test about the weather forecast, so this phrase is part of a longer sentence about some expected sunshine. Because the sunshine won't last very long, you will 'have to be quick' as if you are slow getting outside into it, it will be gone.

Why the second part of the sentence is in simple present tense instead of future tense?
Is it wrong if I say: '...it will disappear soon'?

That would also be acceptable.
