    我來回答,是支持意見欄,並補充。

    1. You have to write 50 words, including punctuation.

    可以。但是我建議使用 punctuation marks.

    punctuation 泛指所有標點,不需加 s.

    例子:for words including punctuation and hyphen characters(參考這裏,標題部份)

    2. 你的句子正確。

    但我要說明的是 if...or (是否)的來由

    Is this good?

    I don't know if this is good (or not).

    Is this good or rotten?

    I don't know if this is good or rotten.

    (你造的句子就符合這一型)

    (1) You are required to write a paragraph including at least 50 words

    and punctuations.

    (2) I'm not sure if the sentence is right.

    = I'm not sure whether the sentence is right or not.

    What DaSaGwa has said and has performed here is exactly what people should learn from these days, about attitude!

    It is very grateful to see someone here who is knowledgeable and also generous and broad-minded.

    Nothing wrong with your sentences, except, "punctuation" needs plural as "punctuations".

    On the other hand, the second sentence can be written as:

    I'm not sure whether the sentence is right (or not).

    2013-08-21 22:37:56 補充:

    The first sentence can be written as:

    You have to write a 50-word essay including punctuations.

    Masterijk! Thank you for your support!

    天天微笑! One thing I like to point out in your writing, that is, there is nothing wrong that you translate directly from Chinese and you get almost perfect in grammar.

    2013-08-21 22:59:13 補充:

    You have done the right thing to learn English for the first part. The second part you need to think in English to promote your English without the trace of Chinese.

    2013-08-21 23:42:57 補充:

    Don't worry about points! It is just my pleasure to give advice according my own experience.

    2013-08-21 23:45:23 補充:

    As long as my saying to you can inspire to learn English better, that will be more important and useful to you.

    2013-08-22 08:23:43 補充:

    Master Allen's answer makes this question answered more completely. I didn't use "if" in my suggestion, because I thought 天天微笑 already knew how to use "if".

    2013-08-22 08:25:16 補充:

    About punctuation, I didn't think of it as master pointed out. Thank you very much!
