Hi teachers,

This is the situation:

There has been a car accident somewhere. The man in the car is ok, but two of his ribs are fractured.

Dr. Wilson: His legs are okay, but two of his ribs are fractured.

If I want to ask about how many ribs the man in the car has fractured, the question should be?

"How many ribs has the man in the car fractured?"

The thing is that the students don't know about the present perfect yet. Is there another way to ask about how many ribs are fractured including the subject "the man in the car" in the question?

Thanks in advance

Concept question if your teaching < their understanding>

Has the man in the car fractured three ribs?
Thank you bar9on for your answer, but the thing is that this question should contain 'how many'.

My own idea is this one, "How many of the man's in the car ribs are fractured?"

Is it fine or it sounds really weird?

Thank you so much bar9on for your help and time. I'll pick up this one because the students haven't studied the simple past yet.Emotion: wink
