    hihi

    hi here's a silly question,

    1. I don't know if he likes me.
    2. I don't know whether he likes me.
    3. I don't know if he likes me or not.
    4. I don't know whether he likes me or not.

    I don't know if "or not" is necessary here, can anyone tell me?

    Re: hihi

    The "or not" is not necessary. When someone says "I don't know whether he likes me or not," that's often a subtle prompt for the listener to reply, "Of course he likes you!"
