if a string says:
1.15mm
1.20mm
1.25mm
1.30mm
could anyone help me, could you lot next to which one is 16gauge,17g,18g?please

This is according to the USRSA.

The string gauge is usually measured with the string under tension. A string may fit into one gauge category, and once under tension fit into another gauge.

U.S. Diameter

15 1.41-1.49 mm
15L 1.33-1.41 mm
16 1.26-1.34 mm
16L 1.22-1.30 mm
17 1.16-1.24 mm
18 1.06-1.16 mm

How about mm? Is that also measured under tension?

Thats how it is measured in mm, and according to the USRSA the string is measured under tension.
Example:
A string that measures 1.26 mm unstrung would appear to be either a 16 or 16L. When strung, however, the diameter might become 1.21, which would make it a 17-gauge string.
