    which is right

    Hi, Teachers.

    Which of the following sentences is correct?

    1. She had her doubts whether he would come.
    2. She had her doubts that he would come.
    3. I have no doubt whether you will succeed.
    4. I have no doubt that you will succeed.
    It would be very nice if you could provide me with some detailed explanation.

    Thanks in advance.
