    project 2 - sentence

    In my brother's workbook Project 2 I found this sentence:

    What colour hair have you got?


    I don't think it's correct. Am I right?

    Thank you in advance

    What do you think is wrong with it?

    I do not understand the position of the word 'colour'. I have never encountered it used this way.

    I'd say the sentence would be better like this:

    What colour of hair have you got?
    or
    What is the colour of your hair?

    What colour is your hair?
    What is the colour of your hair?
    What colour hair have you got?
    What colour hair do you have?

    They are all correct.

    And "What colour of hair have you got" is not correct.
