    What he did is the wrong thing.

    What he did is the wrong thing.

    Is it grammatically correct?

    Re: What he did is the wrong thing.

    It's possible, though I'd normally expect 'was'. It's difficult to give helpful answers with so little context.

    Re: What he did is the wrong thing.

    I'd expect "was" but also a shorter sentence.

    What he did was wrong.
    He did the wrong thing.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
