针对上面所说的频度副词和表示“在某段时 间内某种动作的次数”的状语提问时，都要用 how often。 换句话说，如果要回答由how often提问的句 子，我们通常要用频度副词或诸如every day, each week, once a week, twice a day, four times a month等来回答。
例如： 4. -How often do you borrow books from the library? -Twice a month. 5. -How often does your mother do the washing? -She does it every day. 6. -How often can you go to the movie? -Once a week.
对划线部分提问： e.g. She usually comes to see her grandpa four times a month. （呼和浩特市中考题） _____ _____ _____ she usually come to see her grandpa? 解析：How often does。划线部分four times a month涉及频率，应用How often提问，同 sometimes、usually、often、always、once、 twice、once a week、twice a year等。句中动 词comes为单三式，改为疑为句时应添加助动 词does，动词还原。
（2012菏泽中考）--- Steve, ______ do you play basketball after school? --- Twice a week. It can keep me healthy. A. how far B. how soon C. how long D. how often 解析：选D。考查疑问词辨析。how far“多远 ”，问路程； how soon“多久；多久之后” ， 对将来的一段时间之内或之后提问； how long “多长时间”，问时段；how often“多久一 次”，问频率。由答语“Twice a week.”可知问 频率, 故选D。
