that vs. if and whether

  • October 4, 2014, 7:40am

Whether and if can be used interchangeably when reporting yes/no questions.
eg.
The policeman asked if / whether I had seen the accident.


Use Whether only
eg.
He asked whether I wanted to go by air or by sea.
He asked whether or not I wanted to insure my luggage.
Note: Using whether is far more common. It is certainly more formal.

I think you better check it in http://www.grammar-monster.com/easily_confused/if_and_whether.htm
