    Good luck with or Good luck on?

    Hello,

    Could you please tell me the difference between these sentences and how to use each in a situation.

    Good luck on your job hunting. uses on as the preposition
    Good luck with that. uses with as the preposition

    Can you tell what's your mother's name? uses word what
    Can you tell your mother's name? does not use word what

    Many thanks in advance.

    Both are fine.

    'Can you tell what's your mother's name?' Unnatural
    'Can you tell what is your mother's name?' Possible
    'Can you tell what your mother's name is?' Possible
    'Can you tell your mother's name?' The most likely
