Whether they are useful skills, important values or good habits, parents teach us a lot that we need for life.
Whether it is useful skills, important values or good habits, parents teach us a lot that we need for life.
I don't know if these two sentences are good. I'm worried that "whether it is" is followed by plural nouns. I'm also worried that "whether" is followed by more than two items.
My current knowledge:
I learned the following sentences from the following websites, and I assume they are good sentences.
https://strategiesforparents.com/whether-it-be-grammatically-correct-use-of-this-phrase/ has these two sentences:
She likes drawing, whether it be portraits, landscapes, or still life sketches.
I enjoy indoor activities, whether it be reading, writing, or cooking.
https://www.inenglishwithlove.com/blog/difference-between-if-and-whether says When introducing more than two options, use if. But with whether, we’re limited to two choices. For example,
I don’t know whether/if the meeting is on Tuesday or Thursday.
I don’t know if the meeting is on Tuesday or Thursday, or if it’s next week.
