    "How much I must pay?" - really right?

    Hello,
    I heard a similar sentence some minutes ago.

    How much I must pay for this holiday?
    Is this really right?
    In my opinion, it has to be:
    How much must I pay for this holiday?

    I mean there are plenty of other sentences which use this structure:
    How much does a game cost?
    How much do I need?

    (Not the exact same structure, but a similar.)

    Cheers!

    Is this really right? No, it's not correct.
    In my opinion, it has to be:
    How much must I pay for this holiday? This is the correct grammar for asking a question.

    How much does a game cost?
