Ask: ______ music do you listen to every day?

Answer: Less than an hour.

A. How much
B. How long

I choose A.

If I use "how long", I would say

How long do you listen to music every day?

or

How long of music do you listen to every day?

Could you tell me if I am right or wrong? And please tell me which way you usually say in this situation.

Your intuition is correct. The question is "How much music do you listen to every day." Or it could be "How long do you listen to music every day." "How long of music" is not correct.

If I were to ask the question, I'd ask "How much music do you listen to each day." Using every in the question implies that the answer you receive will be the same for all days. With each I would be more comfortable telling you that I listen for a few hours on the weekends, and much less on weekdays.

  • How to say "How long this song"? The answer is supposed to be like "3 minutes" or "5 minutes". – Zhang Nov 26 '18 at 8:50
  • "How long is this song?" – Todd Nov 26 '18 at 17:37
