In intrebari cu What sau Who

For este deasemenea, folosit in intrebari care incep cu What , atunci cand impreuna cu acesta din urma, are sensul de Why?
Intrebam care este scopul in situatii mai putin formale.

In loc de: ”Why are you here?”, putem spune si: ”What are you here for?” sau, In loc de: ”Why are you doing it?”, putem spune:
”What are they doing it for?”

Perioada de timp

Perioada, timpul de asteptare, cat dureaza, cat tine. Vom folosi For pentru a exprima cat timp dureaza o actiune, o stare:
