If the output you're trying to get is:
Code:
I like apple

then using grep -q is never going to work for you. You'd want something more like:
Code:
grep -v ';$' filename

to do that. If you don't want grep to produce any output but an exit code telling you whether or not there were any lines in a file that did not have a semicolon as the last character on the line, then you want something more like:
Code:
if grep -qv ';$' filename
then	echo "At least one line in filename does not end in \";\"!"
else	echo "Every line in filename ends in \";\"."
fi
