    Doubt about the presence of "there" in questions with "left" at the end

    Hello,

    I have a doubt about the presence of the word "there" in questions with the word "left" at the end of the sentence.
    I sense that "there" must be correct in certain questions such as "Is there any milk left ?", but wrong in questions
    such as "How much milk is left ?" and "How much milk is there left ?" doesn't sound right to me.

    Are my conceptions correct ?

    Is there a rule I could give my ESL students about it ?

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    How much milk is there left? is fine.
