Question form - Comment.....

Bonjour,

Comment ça se fait que.... and Comment se fait-il que....

Are the above not interchangeable?  I keep getting marked wrong when I use the second one.

Merci, Julia

Hi Julia,

Yes, they mean the same thing but 

Comment ça se fait que ....?

is more lowly than 

Comment se fait-il que ...?

which is a more elevated language so it might just be a question of context.

Hope this helps!
