    How much will it cost

    1 How much will each of these places cost to go to?
    2 How much will it cost to go to each of these place?

    I think sentence '2' has two possible meanings:
    a How much will going to all of these places costs?

    b How much will each single place cost to go to separately? Here the reply would be a list.


    I think sentence '1' could only mean 'b'.


    Am I correct?


    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: How much will it cost

    Each in both cases suggests that the speaker wants a breakdown rather than a total IMO.

    PS It should be places in 2.
