    Without computer

    Is it grammatically right to ask:
    "Without computer, how do you think the life is?"
    Are there other ways to express this question?
    Thanks!

    Re: Without computer

    No, it's not right.

    Perhaps you mean 'Without computers, what do you think life would be like?'

    Re: Without computer

    oh, yes. That's it. I am confusing with these kinds of question which is like " What do you think + clause?"
    Are there any structures for such questions?

    Re: Without computer

    How do you think = question about the way/manner means- How do you think she travelled there? (= by train/car, etc)
    What do you think = questions about someone's opinion

    Re: Without computer

    Does it make sense to say 'Without computers, how do you think life would change?'
