    Friend's house rent has been increased.

    Tom: - "My friend's house rent has been increased by his land lord."

    John:- "By how many dollars?"

    Tom:- "I don't know by how many dollars? But the only thing I know is that it has been increased."

    Please check.

    Re: Friend's house rent has been increased.

    My friend's landlord has increased/put up his rent.
    By how much?
    I don't know. I only know that the rent has gone up.

    Can we say "rent has been increased by five dollars?"
