Hi Teachers,
Could you tell me if these are these appropriate explanations?
Questions with 'like'
What does she look like? (physical appearance / physical description)
What is she like? (personality)
What is the weather like? (description of the climate)
What was the night sky like? (description of the night sky)
How was the night sky? (description of the night sky)
How was the play? (personal opinion / description of the play)
What was the play like? (personal opinion / description of the play)
For all these questions we always use the verb 'be' in the answers.
Thanks in advance

Hi
I think the questions seem all right. But I am wondering whether it is necessarily 'be' in the answers.

Hi Thinking Spain

Yes, 'be' comes as the first choice.

I meant you can have also other verbs. For instance verbs like, look, seem,etc
How was the play? it was fine. It moved us to tears. etc
