    how many

    How many people are there singing on the balcony?

    Q: Is the sentence right?

    Or this sentence is right?
    How many people are singing on the balcony?

    Thank you

    Both sentences are fine.

    It's the same difference as:
    "There are five people singing on the balcony." and
    "Five people are singing on the balcony."
