How + adjective questions

Monday, November 26, 2012

There is a certain way to ask questions when you want to know the amount, level, or extent of something or someone's qualities, and it's an easy questions to form:
How + adjective

How + talented is David's sister?
How + long is a Boeing 747?
How + old is Charlie Brown?
How + dry is the Sonoran Desert?

When speaking of height for people, never use high as the descriptive adjective.
Instead we use How + tall is...? How + short is...?

How tall is Paul McCartney?
How high is Mt. Everest?
How short is Tom Cruise?

How + smart are you after reading this post? Very!
