So, should it not be? 每天你几点吃午饭? 或者 你每天什么时候吃午饭?

Same question. Duo used 他每天都不吃午饭 for 'he doesn't eat lunch every day'. Can someone provide us an explanation.

Yes, it's always from bigger to smaller, day -> hour -> minute.

From how i understand it, the more general time always goes first. So if you were asking what day every year, it would be 每年几天 instead. Year then month then day then hour.........

A general rule in Chinese is things are listed from largest to smallest, IE: Year, Month, Day, Time "We are meeting on Monday at 2:OO PM. Or when speaking of location they list places from smallest to largest: Country, State, City, Street, Building "I am from the US, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma City," Just remember the bigger thing comes first, usually.
