    is/does

    Would someone explain which cases do we use these two sentences in? (If both of them are correct ones.)

    1. What is it like?
    2. What does it like?

    Thanks

    Re: is/does

    What is it like?

    = 1. How does it feel (to you) ?
    A: I tried parachuting once.
    B; What's it like?
    A: Exciting, but scary.


    = 2. What is it similar to?
    A: It's hard to describe exactly what 'omali' is.
    B: Well then, what's it like?
    A: I suppose it's a bit like English bread-and-butter pudding .

    What does it like? = Interrogative form of 'it likes'

    A: My cat is very fussy about food. it dislikes most delicacies I offer it.
    B: What does it like?
    A: Rabbit; that's about all.

    I can't find a question here, but your sentences are all correct.
