As far as i know it is correct to say:

A two-meter-long fossilized turtle discovered .

When we make this sentence structure into question sentence , can i say :

How- many -meter -long fossilized turtle was discovered ?

  • Your first sentence is not correct. Did you leave out a was? "A two-meter-long fossilized turtle was discovered." – Canadian Yankee Feb 7 at 13:32

There is no way to do this in standard English (though some people, particularly maths and science geeks, will write "a how-many-metre-long turtle").

In standard English, it has to be recast: "How many metres long was the fossilized turtle that was discovered?"
