"If" = a hypothetical situation For example, "If I were the Queen of the Universe, everyone would get Fridays off." If the Meaning is a choice between two things, "whether" conveys that idea. The Meaning is the choice between purchasing a home and not purchasing home. _________________ Vivian Kerr GMAT Rockstar, Tutor http://www.GMATrockstar.com http://www.yelp.com/biz/gmat-rockstar-los-angeles Former Kaplan and Grockit instructor, freelance GMAT content creator, now offering affordable, effective, Skype-tutoring for the GMAT at$150/hr.
