Should it be:

There are a number of resons why i dont like him.


There are a numbers of reasons that i dont like him.


Both sentences sound well but I am confused, are both correct? When to use that or why after "reason" in such sentences?

  • Both options are correct with little or no difference in meaning. Both are omissible too: "There are a number of reasons I don't like him".

  • @user178049 it means above-mentioned sentences would be correct, even if we don't add why/that

The best choice would be:

There are a number of reasons why I don't like him.
