    Correct.

    Incorrect because "music" is not countable.

    The first one is the most natural. The third one is OK. The second one is incorrect because "music" is uncountable.

    Re: Which is correct?

    Thank you both.
    Can you tell me what is the difference between first one and third one exactly?


    Also I have a question about a sentence in my writing.

    The sentence is:
    Which sentence[s] is/are correct?
    I wrote that sentence in post #01. Is this form suitable when we don't know how many sentences are correct?
    In another words, are "[s]" and "is/are" correct?

    I hope you understand what I mean.

    Re: Which is correct?

    The third one is asking specifically about different types of music.
    "Which sentence[s] is/are correct?" This is fine in the context of your question.
