Question words: wie viel

Wie viel kosten die Gurken? = Was kosten die Gurken? = Wie teuer sind die Gurken?

In W-questions, the question word is in first position. The conjugated verb is in second position.

Instead of a single question word, we can use an interrogative adverb (usually: wie ...) in two parts; in most cases, a question word plus adjective.

Interrogative adverb

Was kostet das Fleisch?
Wie viel kostet das Fleisch?
Wie teuer ist das Fleisch?


In W-questions, be careful with the subject. It comes after the verb, but you must still be careful to choose the correct verb form:
