1. What's she like?
- She's really tall.

2. What's the boy like?
- He is cute.

3. What's she like?
- She is handsome.

(Are they grammatical?)

All are grammatical, but females are rarely described as handsome (unless they're old!). I'd substitute "beautiful" or "attractive" in its place.

4. What's the boy like?
- He is pretty.

(What about this answer? Can we answer like this?)

  • English -

    No ... if you tell a boy he is pretty, he'll be very insulted!

    Females -- pretty, attractive, beautiful ...
    Males -- handsome, attractive ...
