    Default Sentence help needed !!

    Hi Guys,

    Could you please verify if the following sentence is correct or not ?

    Sentence : " Is is safe to assume if variable is not NULL ? "

    If it is wrong, please help me with the reason. I had an argument with a friend and I have to prove him.

    Regards,
    Shwetha

    Hi Shwetha,

    Try this instead:

    " Is it safe to assume that the variable is not NULL ? "

    Also, please note that the context in which the question would be used would help to assess whether the text corrected here does in fact conform to your intended meaning.
