    "Would it be like" is an incomplete question, "it would be like" could be part of the answer to it. "What would it be like?" "It would be like this." For example.

    Hi,

    You can use '...would it be like' in questions and 'it would be like in either statements or indirect questions.

    Example:

    A: "Let's have a party."

    B: "What would it be like?"

    or

    B: "Would it be like the one we had last summer?"

    in statements and indirect questions

    A:this party would be like the one we had last summer.

    B:Do you know if it (the party) would be like the one we had last summer.

    A= student A

    B= student B

    I hope this would help you understand the difference.

    Thanks
