    I want to know if my sentences is grammatically correct or not.

    I have made a dialogue:

    My teacher: "Why did you write that on the board?"

    Me: "1. I want to know if my sentences is grammatically correct."
    Me: "2. I want to know if my sentence is grammatically correct or not."
    Me: "3. I want to know whether my sentences is grammatically correct."
    Me: "4. I want to know whether my sentence is grammatically correct or not."
    Me: "5. I want to know whether or not my sentence is correct."


    Hello,
    I have some doubts on the blue sentences written by me. Would you please help me on them? Which ones are incorrect?

    Re: I want to know if my sentences is grammatically correct or not.

    For a start, all of your suggestions with "my sentences is" are incorrect. You have followed a plural noun with a singular verb.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I want to know if my sentences is grammatically correct or not.

    Thanks for answering. Yes I have made a mistake there. What if I write them in singular form?

    My teacher: "Why did you write that on the board?"

    Me: "1. I want to know if my sentence is grammatically correct."
    Me: "2. I want to know if my sentence is grammatically correct or not."
    Me: "3. I want to know whether my sentence is grammatically correct."
    Me: "4. I want to know whether my sentence is grammatically correct or not."
    Me: "5. I want to know whether or not my sentence is correct."

    They're all acceptable.
