“How long of a drive is it to your parents’ house?”

It would be correct to say “how big a dog” or “how long a sandwich”, but it’s common to hear “of” in these phrases. However, it’s best to avoid using it in formal speech.


of を使わなくても正しい(むしろ使わないほうがより正しい)ですが、よく of を含んだフレーズをききます。ですが、フォーマルな場面では避けたほうがいいです。
