    Cool look younger

    Hello!

    I have a doubt regarding the end of the sentence, can you help me?:

    -"Your new haircut is great. You look 20 !/ You look like you're 20!"

    Thank you

    Will17,

    In English the words doubt and question do not have the same meaning.

    "I have a question about this food." This means that I want to know how the food is prepared or what the ingredients are, etc.

    "I have a doubt about this food." This means that I think the food may be spoiled, bad-tasting, or unhealthy.

    Doubt always implies a negative connotation.
