    Are these sentences correct.

    1) How long is the longest you have not seen your family?
    2) How long is the longest time that you can refrain from eating chocalate?

    Hi!

    How long is the longest...? and How long is the longest time...? are pleonasms, aren't they?

    Re: Are these sentences correct.

    No, that wouldn't work. With your question, you are basically asking how long has it been since you have last seen your family. Scott's question is asking what the longest time period was since you have seen your family.
