Wheelock's Chap. 32, SA#4

Sorry to ask such an obvious question, but this escapes me.

Wheelock's Chapter 32 SA #4: Plus novisti quid faciendum sit. What use of the subjunctive might this be with the future passive participle. Is this a subjunctive passive periphrastic construction? thanks.

workbook answer disagreement

Chapter 8 English to Latin translation no.2. Wheelock gives answer as Civitas tyrannos Graeco numquam gratias aget. My answer is .......gratias numquam aget.
