1. How many times did Brazil win the World Cup?
2. How many times has Brazil won the World Cup?
Which is more common expression when you ask about the number of something and
How are the two sentences different?
I'm teaching Present Perfect nowadays and I don't really see the
differences between the two sentences above.
Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
How many films did Marilyn Monroe make? She's not likely to make any more, as she died some time ago.
How many films has Meryl Streep made? It is possible that she will continue to make more films.
Just for info, in BrE you'll hear "How many times have Brazil won the World Cup?"
