    Hola, tengo que responder a esta pregunta:

    How did he feel when he discovered what reality was like?

    Y quiero contestar: "Cuando descubrió como era la realidad se sintió muy triste."

    ¿Está bien lo siguiente?

    When he discovered how was the reality he felt very sad.

    ¿O debería ser "like was the reality"?

    Gracias.

    When he discovered what reality was like, he felt very sad.
    When he found out what reality was like, he felt very sad.

    Gracias, no sabía que se pudiera usar "what" en oraciones afirmativas. Pensé que sólo era para preguntas.

    "what" often translates to "lo que".
