    Question **How long**

    Hi teachers!
    It (T.V) can get anywhere in the world in moments where the fastest jet takes hours to reach.
    Q1. What would be the question of the above sentence please?
    Should that be:
    (a) How long does it (T.V) reach anywhere very far?
    (b) For how long does it (T.V) reach anywhere very far?
    (c) In how long does it (T.V) reach anywhere very far?

    Q2. I know the structure " He's the tallest man I've ever seen" with superlative degree of adjective but can we use the same structure with comparative degree too, like in this sentence " It spreads the colours more than the flowers and butterflies we've ever seen"?
    Regards!

    Re: **How long**

    Q1) How long does it take T.V. to reach anywhere in the world?
    Q2) 'He's one of the taller men I've ever seen.' is Okay.
    It has more colours than all of the flowers and butterflies we've ever seen.

    Thank you very much for your answer.But In my original positive sentence
    I didn't use "take", so do I have to use "take" when making question of it?Is it compulsory?Why?
    Secondly, what's wrong with my sentences " He's the tallest man I've ever seen" and " It spreads colours more than flowers and butterflies we've ever seen"? Are they grammatically wrong or do they sound odd? For learners explanations are really very important and helpful.
    Looking forward to the answers.
