    Talking 11-how does it cost?

    Dear all

    Is the following question formal and correct for asking the price or not? Can I use it instead of ( How much is it?) and ( How much does it cost ?) ?
    What does it cost ?
    If this question is correct , where can it be used ? Is it formal or informal? And where is it used? Isn't it archaic?
    Thanks a million

    What does it cost?
    This is fine- we do still use it, so I wouldn't consider it archaic. It can also be used for things that cost not just in monetary terms but also in effort, etc.
