"Se" is for a condition. Se X Then Y happens. Then Y Se X. Mi ne scias se mi estas stulta = If am I am stupid then/therefore I don't know = If the condition of being stupid is true, then I don't know.

"Ĉu" in a middle of a sentence is for "whether." It is if you are not sure of the happening of something. Mi ne scias ĉu mi estas stulta = I don't know if I am stupid OR NOT.

Hi, could you please edit your post and change the topic from "Troubleshooting" to "Esperanto"? No need to create a new post, just edit this one.

That way folks who know Esperanto can help you out. Thanks!
