    Default two more questions :)

    Dear teachers,
    Please look at the following sentence:
    The question is if he has finished it or not.

    Is the sentence correct or not? why?


    _____do you like about the plan? (What/How)

    Should I choose what or how? why?

    Thanks

    I suppose that is acceptable, but "whether" would be better, IMO.

    It must be "what" there. The word must function as the object of "like". As a pronoun, "what" can do that; "how" cannot.
