"How many pieces of furniture are there in the house?"
Translation:Hvor mange møbler finnes det i huset?
I think i finally realized when to use ''hvor'' for ''hvordan'', whenever you have an adjective after the question word use ''hvor''. Ex: (This sentence), and Hvor gammel er du, Hvor sulten er du.
That's right, you would use "hvor" for "how" when it's followed by an adjective or an adverb.
"How" translates to...
- Hvor when referring to the degree or amount of something.
- Hvordan when referring to the manner in which something is done.
"Furniture" is an uncountable noun in English, but the Norwegian equivalent is a countable noun. This means that we don't need to talk of 'pieces of' furniture in Norwegian; we simply use the plural form of the noun.
