    How often/how many

    How often is she in London?
    How often does she stay in London?
    How many days a week is she in London?
    How many days a week does she stay in London?

    Are all of the above correct, please?
    I believe so...But when I have to ask this sort of a question I always stumble over does/is part. Because I know that the answer will be in numbers (twice, three times, etc) and it seems that 'does' have nothing to do with that.

    Thank you.

    That's true, and neither does "is."

    Yes, I just skipped that bit

    Re: How often/how many

    It does have something to do with it.

    How often is she in London? She is in London twice a week.
    How often does she stay in London? She stays [does stay] in London twice a week.
