There are a lot of fruits in tropical regions that we should know the right way to eat them. I want to ask locals about how should I eat for example Durian. Which question is the best?

  1. "How Durian should be eaten?"

  2. "How should I eat Durian?"

  3. "What is the right way to eat Durian?"

In Australian English, to ask the proper way to do something, you would ask: How do you [do something]?

So I would ask: How do you eat durian?

Your second two examples would also be correct, but less common.

Your first example has the wrong word order, it should be: How should durian be eaten?

    Quite right, but what's uniquely Australian about that?

I would ask the question "What is the correct way to eat durian?" Or "How should durian be eaten?"


I think I may say like "What is the right way to eat durian?" Or "How do you eat durian?" Or "How should I eat durian?"
