  • English -

    1 - The fourth one is probably the most commonly used; all are grammatically correct.

    2 - 7 --

    2 is probably the best.
    3 is awkward and not parallel.

    Scroll down to the second chart to see examples similar to yours.

    4 is OK, but would be better with "but" instead of "and" since you are setting up a contrast.

    5 and 6 are OK, but the sentences sound "choppy" when they are not joined with a comma and conjunction as the earlier ones are.

    7 is OK, but also sounds choppy as separate sentences. Also the conjunction in the second sentence should be "or" not "and."

    9 is better than 8; since you are referring to a specific person you call by that term, the capital G needs to be there. If you had written, "Is that really my grandmother?" -- then no capital G.
