I am using Wordpress platform for my blog sites and I don't really care which PHP it is using. I heard of the latest PHP version is PHP7 but this version will run best for latest version of WordPress? Can anyone suggest me how to check PHP version on my hosting and how it will help improve performance for my wordpress blogs?

Waiting for your valuable answers!

You should have in your web hosting control panel.
PHP7 is faster then other versions and your WordPress should slightly runs faster then on previous versions. Also new WP version is more secure than older ones plugins also will be supported for new WP version.
I would you suggest to get php7 and WP 4.6

I agree go with version 7 it's reported to be around 3x faster.
Their are a few different ways you can check your PHP version.

If your on CloudLinux you can check your php version from cPanel alternatively you can make a php info test file

1. Create a file called test.php in the root on your public_html folder.
2. Add the following to the file

<?php

phpinfo();

?>

3. view the file in your browser yourdomain.com/test.php
