Syntax question

"What are we going to make his eyes and nose with?" Martine then asked. This was translated: "Avec quoi va-t-on faire ses yeux et son nez?" a alors demandé Martine.

I used: "Qu'est-ce qu'on va utiliser pour lui faire ses yeux et son nez?" Martine a ensuite demandé.

Would that also be acceptable?

Hi Ann,

You answer is possible and correct but a little long-winded for every day speech .

If you read the two answers out loud and compare the number of syllables you will see what I mean. Sometimes the easiest route is used.

Hope this helps!
