what it looks like vs. how it looks like I heard that native speakers only speak what it looks like,and the latter one is wrong. But today,when I was searching the difference between turnip and beet,I happened to find the latter one appear in that article.So it might be right? And thus my question has changed into any difference between these two phrases? Thanks so much.

"How it looks like" is grammatically incorrect. Yes, a lot of native English speakers will say "how it looks like", but you will find well learned speakers will not. The correct form is "how it looks", i.e, "that's how she looks".

Can you give us the paragraph it was in? So we can see the context.
