    Re: Which sentence is right?

    Welcome to the forum, Liz.

    The first is correct.

    Note that 'true' does not mean the same as 'correct', and you should have written 'Which of these sentences is correct?'

    Ok. I'm sorry. I'll be more careful. And thanks for help. But if I use "these sentences" then I must to use "are" not "is" mustn't I?

    Hello, liz_gilies.

    You don't have to say sorry. You've done nothing wrong.
    Please think of the sentence as:

    Which [of these sentences] is correct?

    I hope you'll understand what I mean.
