    "What's the banana like?" "It's sweet."

    This sentence is taught by an English teacher of my nephew in primary school. Is it gramatically correct? Because for me, it might be: "How does the banana taste?" "It's sweet."

    1. What is a/the banana like? It is sweet.
    2. What does the banana taste like? It's sweet.
    3. How does the banana taste?

    #1 does not only refer to taste, but shape, color, etc.
