    Default What/How do you think of my goals

    "What do you think of my goals?"

    In the above sentence, is it possible to put 'how' instead of 'what'?

    If you want to change the meaning of the sentence, then you can change it to "How".

    Sorry - I was trying to merge two other threads and I accidentally brought this along. I think I"ve straightened it out, but if not, I apologize!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
