    Other than the fact that the first one doesn’t have a question mark, there is no difference.

    The part of bhaisahab's response after the comma still applies.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes. Just re-wrote it with the correct punctuation. I think as a student, the more I write, the better I get at writing, and it helps me remember easier what is right and what is wrong.

    OK, but writing a new post just to practise your own writing, without making it clear that that is what you're doing, makes us waste time opening and reading your new post and then wondering what its point was.
