    What's it good for and...

    Let's say someone wanted to list the pros and cons of something.
    What could he say:

    "What 's it good for and for what it isn't"

    "What's it good for and not" (?)

    "For what it's good for and isn't"

    What is it good for and what isn't it good for?
