    Sentence to translate:
    ¿Cuánto tiempo nos queda?

    A) How much time do we have left?
    B) How long do we have left?

    Are both correct?
    I'm sure about A, but what about B?

    Thanks in advance!

    One more question ...
    "How long do we have?" without "left"
    Does it also sound fine?
    Does this sentence always need the word "left"?

    Thank you

    Yes, it sounds fine without "left." It's understood/implied.

    It sounds fine but...

    "¿Cuánto tiempo tenemos?" = "How long have we got?"
    "¿Cuánto tiempo nos queda?" = "How long have we got left."
