I am having trouble with the formation of interrogative sentences in which 'before' or 'after' is involved.
I feel that something is wrong with the following interrogative sentences, but don't know what that is.

I will arrive two days after the event.
1. After how many days will you arrive?
2. How many days after the event will you arrive?


I will arrive two days before the event.
3. How many days before will you arrive?
4. How many days before the event will you arrive?

    I will arrive two days before the event.
    3. How many days before will you arrive?:confused:

    Number 3 is possible if context makes clear that you're talking about the event and its schedule.
