    What did you do that for?

    What did you do that?

    Is the second sentence a good one?
    Do the two sentences mean the same?

    hi,

    I dont think they hold the same meaning,

    if you write " why did you do that?", they will have the same meaning.

    what did you do that? that sentence has no meaning.
