Question doesn’t make sense

"Elle habite à quatre-vingts kilomètres d'ici." How far does she live?


This is not a full sentence. ‘How far does she live?’ How far does she live from what?

Hi Sandra,

Q: How far does she live? Elle habite loin d'ici?

A: She lives eighty km from hereElle habite à quatre-vingts km d'ici

Ici= here

wherever you want it to be, it is an example testing numbers.

Hope this helps!

"How far does she live" is a bit colloquial in English (at least to my American trained ears). It would be better to say "How far away..." or "How far off..." or "How far from here...".
