    What I want to ask is whether/that

    Hi,

    - What I want to ask is whether you are happy with me or not.
    - What I want to ask is that you are happy with me or not.
    - What I want to ask is are you happy with me or not?
    - What I want to ask is you are happy with me or not.

    Which do you think is/are grammatically OK? I know the last one is OK but I am not sure of the first two.

    Thank you!

    Hello,

    I am 99.99% confident that the last one is not OK.

    What I want to ask is whether you are happy with me or not.
    What I want to ask is if you are happy with me or not.
    What I want to ask is - Are you happy with me or not?

    Your example with "that" does not work.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
