    How much (salary) will they 'provide' or 'offer' if a candidate joins the company?

    Can somebody ask at a company the following?

    1) How much (salary) will they 'provide' or 'offer' if a candidate joins the company?

    2) How much salary do they 'provide' or 'offer' to freshers?

    In that sentence, "at a company" is in the wrong place. In fact, I find it unnecessary.

    That's not natural. Try rephrasing your sentences and please endeavour to keep them as short as possible.

    This seems to be your attempt at following my advice in this post. However, you still haven't followed all the advice. Here is how it should have looked:

    Can somebody ask a company the following questions?

    1. How much salary will they provide if a candidate joins the company?
    2. How much salary will they offer if a candidate joins the company?
    3. How much salary do they provide to freshers?
    4. How much salary do they offer to freshers?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Tufguy, please note that ems's version of your question contains no quotation marks. Even though we often ask posters to use these marks, they should be used carefully.
