# Thread: I need to elaborate a better question to the given statement (1)

1. ## I need to elaborate a better question to the given statement (1)

Hi teachers,
According to this statement, 'Many families in the United States teach their children at home', this one could be a correct question, 'How many families in the United States teach their children at home?
My question is, could you give me a more complicated or elaborated question to the given statement?

Could you do the same to this one please? 'The children do all their schoolwork at home'.

You're sure you want to focus on the number? "Many" is not very precise and it's hard to construct a question to get "Many" as the answer. "What do many families do?" is a better question, perhaps.

What do the children do at home? OR Where do the children do their schoolwork? (Not both.)

(I question the use of "many" but I know it's a CD and you can't change what it says.)

[QUOTE=Barb_D;873831]You're sure you want to focus on the number? "Many" is not very precise and it's hard to construct a question to get "Many" as the answer. "What do many families do?" is a better question, perhaps. Not necessary to focus on the number. I really like yours.

What do the children do at home? OR Where do the children do their schoolwork? (Not both.) Great!

(I question the use of "many" but I know it's a CD and you can't change what it says.) Good memory!!

Hi,
Thank so much for your time and help.
