... is it from Barselona to Madrid?
1) how far
2) how long
3)how much
4) how many
I don't know which one is correct, I think it might be "how many" but I'm not sure



< Second question should have its own thread. Cagey, moderator >

    We only answer one question per thread, Taisiatt.

    "How many" is wrong. It would only be correct if there were a countable unit of measurement also named, as in "how many miles is it from Barcelona to Madrid?", or "How many kilometers is it..." , or (if you are asking about the time it takes for the journey) "How many hours is it ..."

    If you are asking a general question about distance, the correct answer is How far is it from Barcelona to Madrid?

    How long is it from Barcelona to Madrid? 6 hours. How long is the duration of the trip...
    How much is it from Barcelona to Madrid? 80 euros. How much is the fare...
