Is grammar either black or white?


A "master" tutor told me ". . . grammar and sentence structure is either correct or incorrect." Given the number of exceptions that exist in grammar, is this an accurate statement?

It is correct.  It is always discernible whether a given combination of words, punctuation, and capitalization have or have not followed established modern grammar rules and their relevant exceptions.  Very few rules have multiple or contentious interpretations.
