When you turn on an A/C, usually you can set the degrees. For example, you want to find out the degrees selected by your colleague when he turned on the A/C. How would you normally ask the question? Is this natural?

You: What temperature did you select?
Colleague: 24 [degrees Celsius]
 
  • Your sentence is completely correct, and there's really nothing wrong with it except for perhaps being a bit formal.

    I'd probably ask in conversation, though, "What temperature did you set it at", or even shorter, where "temperature" is understood, "What did you set it at?"

    Other posters. might have better/different ideas.

    (I set the time on watches and clocks, and set the temperature on air conditioners.:))
