  • without a doubt, why not?

    if that’s your first sentence, though, you ought to fill in a name instead of ‘she’.

  • Yes, it is okay to start a sentence with without.

    However, your sentence needs a little revision.

    Example correction:

    Without the help of her sister, she was helpless.

    Without the help of her sister is a clause that needs to be set off with a comma at the end

    Hope this helps

  • Yes, but it needs a comma

    Without the help of her sister, she became helpless.

    However you use "help" twice. Consider this:

    Without assistance from her sister, she became helpless.
