While asking a question, which of these sentences is correct?

1. I did not know whether she was right or not?

2. I did not know whether she was right or no?


The main goal behind asking this question is, whenever a question is framed like this what is the correct way to use 'no ' and 'not '.


Please help.

i have seen a lot people talking like: "i don't know if she can perform on stage or no? " (is the usage of 'no' correct? o shud it b 'not' ?)
