    What is the difference?

    What is the difference between these two sentences?

    Whose bicycle is that?
    Whose is that bicycle?

    Can anyone please explain to me the structure etc of the two sentences.

    Re: What is the difference?

    Welcome to Using English, krn.

    The first sentence is correct.

    (In the future, you could use a better title: "whose bicycle is that" would have been perfect.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    They are both fine in BrE, with no difference in meaning.
