GMAT usage of whether vs if

Closed 0 Answers 439 Views
Usage of “if”
The word “if” is used for clauses that specify conditions or speculate on something hypothetical.
Example : 
1.) Condition: “If you finish your peas, you can have dessert.”
2.) Hypothetical: “If I regularly ate my vegetables, I probably would be healthier.”
 
On the contrary, whether is used to show that two alternatives are possible.
Example
 : Whether you study French or Spanish, you will encounter an unfamiliar language in Japan. 
 
"Whether or not" is generally wrong on the GMAT
