    No, it isn't. Also, there are different ways to kill somebody with a knife, so you need to specify how.

    It needs substantial rewording. Here are a few possibilities.

    You have two choices on how to die. You can jump, or be stabbed/have your throat slit.
    You can either jump or face the knife. It's your choice.
    How do you prefer to die? You can either jump to your death or be stabbed/have your throat slit.
    Wear short sleeves! Support your right to bare arms!

    You are great!
    However, English is my second language. I'm thinking how can I write good standard sentence like you.

    First concentrate on getting simple sentences right, and absorbing the corrections made to your text here.

    You have four open threads at the moment; please don't post any new questions until these have been sorted out.
