    to look at it

    Are these sentences correct:

    1) This building was built recently, but you wouldn't know to look at it.

    2) This building was built recently, but you wouldn't know to see it.

    3) This song is pretty old, but you wouldn't know to listen to it.

    4) This song is pretty old, but you wouldn't know to hear it.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: to look at it

    I'd use 1 and 3 but with the addition of "it" (or "that") after "know".

    This building was built recently but you wouldn't know it/that to look at it.
    This song is pretty old but you wouldn't know it/that to listen to it.


    You could also end with "from looking at it"/"from listening to it".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
