I got some food and some animals. And everyday I give them some food.

So, I decide what food will be eaten by what animal.

How to say it grammatically correct "what food by what animals is obtained"?

"is obtained" here is a passive voice, because this act can be daily repeated in context.

  • LMS, tried to do it. – Ivan Feb 13 '17 at 21:09
  • Is there some reason why you are not following SVO (subject - verb - object/predicate) format? – user3169 Feb 13 '17 at 21:13
  • @user3169, am I right with the following: what food is obtained by what animals – Ivan Feb 13 '17 at 21:18
  • But it's still not clear. Are you trying to form a question, or a statement? Is it part of a longer sentence, or should it stand on its own? – stangdon Feb 13 '17 at 21:20

If you are pet sitting for a friend, you would ask:

What animal gets what food?

That should prompt the pet parent to show/tell you which food to feed to each animal and how to feed them.

This is a very informal way of speaking. If you want to formalize it some, you could say:

Please show me which food is fed to each animal.

  • Thanx, 2nd variant works for me. – Ivan Feb 13 '17 at 21:31
  • I took the liberty of changing "feed" to "fed" in the last sentence - I assume it was just a typo. – stangdon Feb 13 '17 at 21:38

    Or "what animals receive what food?" and "show me which food is given to each animal". There are many possible variations. – Andrew Feb 13 '17 at 21:57
