    How much allowance/ How much is your allowance ?

    How much allowance do you spend a day?

    How much allowance do you spend a week?
    How much allowance do you spend per month?
    How much is your allowance?
    Are all these correct, please? Always I am looking for short, meaningful statement. Thanks.

    They are all grammatical. But, without a context, only the last one is natural for me.

    Re: How much allowance/ How much is your allowance ?

    The questions "How much is your allowance?" and "How much allowance do you spend every month?" are totally different. The first asks how much you are given. The second asks how much of the total you spend. The second would be better worded as "How much of your allowance do you spend every month?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
