    Whether is a conjunction which is used to indicate choices or possibilities. It is used to talk about choice or doubt between two or more alternatives.

    Wither means to dry up slowly. If someone of something withers, they become very weak.

    How to memorize these words?

    Weather with "a" inside indicates "atmosphere". With the help of this trick we can memorize that weather with "a" means something related with air, temperature, rain, etc.

    Whether with "wh" is a conjunction. With the help of "Wh", we can memorize that this word tells about which one. Whether this or that.

    Wether without "h" and "a" means a sheep without sex organ. 

    Wither indicates "with her" ; If you are with her (assume any girl), you wither (become weak). This way we can memorize that wither means to dry up and dies.
