please can we have "paljonko aikaa meillä on" as an acceptable answer?

Hei! Can someone explain me the word order? I wrote paljonko aikaa meillä on, and I don't understand why it is not good. Thanks in advance!

There's nothing wrong with that.

I had:"paljonko aikaa on meillä". Would this be wrong or sound wrong?

I think the 'on' needa to be after the 'meillä' to make it correct. If i recall correctly from earlier lessons, this more more specific and putting the 'on' in front makes it less specific.

It works grammatically; I don't know how common that order would be
