    So many corrections. Please note them

    Hi guys, guys, [one comma]
    Can you tell me what the difference is between these two questions?

    Q1 Wouldn't it be better?
    Isn't it better?


    -- We need a full sentence to tell you.

    Q2 Are the following correct?

    Don't he feel bored? -- No. Doesn't he feel bored. or "Isn't he bored?"
    Don't you feel bored? -- That's okay as corrected. "Aren't you bored" is also okay.


    Q3 Have you been here long? [question mark]
    Can I say "Are you here long? [use ONE question mark] - No. Have you been here long?

    Thanks all of you,,,,, [this is not a sequence of punctuation that has any meaning in English.
    HAVE A NICE DAY! [lower case, please - and one exclamation mark is more than enough]
    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.

    Thanks for your correction. I still have some questions. Why we can only use ( Have you been here long)? not Are you here long?

    Another questions
    Q2 The profit has climbed from $1000 to $4000.
    The profit climb from $1000 to $4000.

    Q3 Isn't it yummy? (Yes it is yummy)

    Can you tell me which one is correct and why? Thanks you so much

    It is because 'we use the Present Perfect to show that something started in the past and has continued up until now'── quoted from http://www.englishpage.com/verbpage/presentperfect.html

    Always capitalise 'I' and never use two commas together.
