1. How much longer is the distance from A to B than (that of) C to D?
2. How much longer the distance from A to B is than (that of) C to D?
Please someone could tell me, are the question above correct and understandable, and which one is which one is not? If no, then is there other simple way to ask?
Thank you in advance.
Sak, (2) is okay as a matter of style but most appropriate (w/change of meaning of course) if "!" instead of "?"
The second sentence is correct.
No, it's not. You do not know English. Please stop trying to 'help' people when you don't know WTF you are talking about.
How much longer is the distance from A to B then the distance from C to D?
I would repeat the word "distance" because it is used in a comparative construction.
It's not correct. Interrogative questions demand to put auxiliary verb or in the first place before the subject.
