  Hi Paulo.

  In the standard English we learn at the school the right answer is:

1. How many cars do you have ? ( correct in your view, and you got it right!)

 

 

2. How many cars you have ? ( this is not correct in my view ).

    Frankly speaking, I don´t have seen sentence #2 in books, mags, newspapers, etc.

    But it might be used in informal situations (maybe more than we can think of), for example, in lyrics.

    They usually don´t put this in grammar books, it can be found sometimes in book about conversation, etc.    But, please don´t make an issue of it, it is the sort of thing that you can do without; believe it. 

 

    May I correct your thread a little bit? okay, let´s go:

 

"If I am wrong, please correct me and give me information where I find something about this grammar, but, if I am right, I thanks for your information."

 

 

 

 If I am wrong, please correct me and give me information where I can find something about this grammar point.  Thanks in advance.

 

 

PP.
