Homework Help: English

Posted by Ajarn on Friday, August 17, 2012 at 8:27am.

My new boss is being picky about a test I made for students.

I wrote a question that reads "how many people in your family?"

It seems perfectly acceptable to me in an MC quiz for beginners, however the boss is saying it should read "how many people are there in your family?"

Is the former not acceptable English. That is in essence how we speak. I am sure they are both acceptable ways of posing the question.

Please give an opinion.
