Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

http://islam1.org/how_to_pray/witr.htm

pray in pairs(rakats) as much as u like less is one and the prophet (pbuh) prayed 11 in pairs and finishes with one u an pray more than 13 and finish with 1 or pray pairs and end with three like al magrib

عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت : " كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقرأ في الركعة الأولى بـ { سبح اسم ربك الأعلى } وفي الثانية بـ { قل ياأيها الكافرون } وفي الثالثة بـ { قل هو الله أحد } والمعوذتين " أخرجه الترمذي.

the prophet (PBUH) read Al-A'la in the first raka after the opening of course and Al-Kafirun in the second and Al-Ikhlas in the third those are the last three rakats although u can recite any surat or verse u want .

allah knows best
