    I have this address only.

    If somebody asked me to give my permanent and correspondence home address and I have only one address then what do i need to say?

    1) I only have one address.

    2) I have this address only.

    3) My correspondence and permanent address are same.


    Please check my sentences.

    Re: I have this address only.

    Sentence #1 is natural. Sentence #2 is less so. Use "addresses" in sentence #3.

    This is what I was thinking but I thought that teechar didn't say anything so it "are same" might be correct.

    Tufguy, don't expect teechar to catch everything. He's not perfect. (Nobody is.)

    I am not saying that it is his mistake but I was saying I had a doubt about that thing.

    If it was what you were thinking, why didn't you use it? I would generally use the form I thought was correct.

    I think you overuse "it" in your sentences. Sometimes it shows up in a sentence and serves no function. You might want to work on that.

    Is "doubt" (for question) Indian English?
