"What do the four boys eat?"
Translation:¿Qué comen los cuatro niños?
i just know that is the sentence order. i learned that from madrigals spanish key book. for example ¿qué compró a su mama? what did your mother buy. but it sounds more like what did she buy your mother. same here... what did they eat, those four boys if you do a literal english translation. the verb comes before the subject when it is a question. hope this helps somewhat
