Hello,

e.g.
1. "How longest time does it take planet to go around the sun?"
2. "how longest vacation do you have?"
3. "what's the longest time that takes planet to go around the sun?"
4. "what's the longest vacation do you have?"

To me, the sentence 3 and 4 are correct, but 1 and 2 are not -- but I'm not sure.. what do you think?
Thanks a lot!

    Hello,

    e.g.
    1. "How longest time does it take planet to go around the sun?":cross: - What is the longest time taken by a planet to orbit the sun?
    2. "how longest vacation do you have?":cross: What's the longest vacation that you have? or How long is your longest vacation?
    3. "what's the longest time that takes planet to go around the sun?":cross: - see my suggestion for 1.
    4. "what's the longest vacation do you have?":cross: - see my suggestions for 2.

    To me, the sentence 3 and 4 are correct, but 1 and 2 are not -- but I'm not sure.. what do you think?
    Thanks a lot!
    I'm afraid I think they are all wrong, Yukinohana. I've put what seem to me correct versions into your text, in brown.
