    Re: look

    not a teacher

    Both questions ask for a description of the appearance of the subject.

    The 2nd question suggests giving an a example of another object which is similar in appearance to the subject to make it easier for one to imagine how the latter looks.

    Re: look

    how does it look - rate its appearance (poor, fair, good)
    what does it look like - describe it by comparing it to something else
