    Default Regarding a meaning and syntax of the sentence.

    Sentence: "Of what use he is of the party ? He can do nothing. He is good for nothing"

    My question/doubts: Is the above underlined sentence correct in syntax and makes sense in native English ? Or the sentence doesn't make any sense and its wrong ? I wanna know this.

    Thanks

    'Of what use is he to the party' sounds good to me.
