    Do you think alcohol is good or bad?

    Is it right or wrong grammartically when I ask this question: "Do you think alcohol is good or bad?"
    Thanks for your help!

    It is right grammatically.

    There's nothing wrong grammatically with the sentence, but you could be asking them whether they enjoy drinking or whether they think it morally right or wrong.

    Re: Do you think alcohol is good or bad?

    Alcohol itself isn't good or bad. I think the question should be about drinking alcohol.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
