Which question is correct? Let's say a person says he usually goes hiking on Sunday, and he says he'll run on this Sunday. Then which question is correct for checking if he really intends to do two sports on this Sunday? I thought of three questions. 1.Are you going to run as well as mountain-climbing? 2.Are you going to run as well as hike? 3.Are you going to both run and hike?

Hey - GOOOOD questions, well done!! Number 2 and 3 are both regular and accepted ways of asking this question. It's all about the emphasis when you actually ask these questions. Question 2, for example: "Are you going to RUN as WELL as hike?" Question 3: "Are you going to both run AND hike?" Number one is different for 2 reasons: 1 - "moutain-climbing" is an entirely different sport to hiking. 2 - It would be.... "as well as "mountain climb" in the non-continuous form, like you have done with hike. Any further questions? Tom
