I found this Question in a student book and I can't understand why not "What is a typical home there?"

    Like means that you are asking for the characteristics of a typical house. Without like your question is more ambiguous; are you asking about price? – MikeJRamsey56 Sep 28 '18 at 19:40

    Have you looked up what "like" means in a dictionary? On this site users are expected to research their problem, and post a question only if their research fails to resolve their confusion. You might also do a search for "usage of like" on our sibling site English Language Learners. – Chappo Sep 28 '18 at 23:46
