    You are to have two camels

    What is the question of these sentences

    Re: onwards

    Neither is a question.

    The first means that you will be given two camels, even if you wanted only one, or as many as six. It has been decided and that's what you're getting.

    The second, although grammatically correct, means nothing. Anything the speaker is trying to say would be phrased differently.

    Hope that is a satisfactory answer!

    Re: onwards

    I think he means the question that will get that as an answer, in which case you could use How many camels am I to have?

    Re: onwards

    Oops - silly of me not to see that.

    I can't think of a question for the second answer though, if the answer is complete in itself. It seems far too awkward to my ears.
