Hello,

I have come across some conflicting information on either / or sentences. Does the subject come before the choice or after . . . . which of the below is correct?


هل هذا كبير أم صغير
Or
هل كبير هذا أم صغير

Thanks

    the second sentence would sound better like this:

    أكبير هذا أم صغير؟

    With the letter أ replacing هل in this case
    But at any rate, the second one is very literary in my opinion, so if it's a simple usage use the first one, but if you're looking to impress use the second :)
