    Re: Which is correct.

    Thank you very much.

    How about if we want to write in a negative sentence.

    Shall we use any reason or any reasons?

    Neither is necessarily ungrammatical. However, they are awkward, and they are not idiomatic. Better:
    .
    I can't tell you why I don't like her.

    or

    I don't know why I don't like her.
