    Question How intelligent are you? Or How are you intelligent?

    I have read somewhere "How intelligent are you?". And this question is easy to understand.
    But the problem is I have also met "How are you intelligent?". I don't know what the difference from these two questions is.

    Re: How intelligent are you? Or How are you intelligent?

    Hi.
    I'm not sure what the context of the question "How are you intelligent?" is and the question can have two meanings. If said sarcastically or meanly, it may mean that the person doesn't believe that another person is intelligent.
    If the context is formal or academic, the question refers to different types of intelligence.

    In AmE, we don't commonly use "meet" when describing a situation in which we found/saw a phrase.

    Hope this helps!:)

    Question Re: How intelligent are you? Or How are you intelligent?

    Thank you rancher247 .

    Hmmm...Now can you help me with this question? It resembles the above. What is the difference from "Do the right thing" and "Do the thing right".

    Do the right thing: Do what people is true, acceptable
    Do the thing right: Do sth as it is guided
