It is correct without "why".
Student or Learner
I have a small question regarding to usage.
When I'm asked why I hold a certain view, is this answer correct:
The reasons why I hold this view are social, economic, etc.
And then I explain those social reasons.
Is this correct? I couldn't find any similar sentences on the Internet, but for me it makes sense.
Thanks for the quick response!
The "reasons" are "the things which explain why ..." so it would be tautologous to add "why" after it.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
