Hello. I have a question about the difference between duō and jǐ. Jǐ is to be used with numbers questions, but isn't it duō used in asking how much \$ an item is? Could you please explain if one is right and the other is wrong?

thanks!

Yes ,when you use duō we would say "duo shao qian",this means how much and when we say "ji dian"this means what time is it now

i think the" duo shao"and"ji"are the same meaning,they all used with No. questions .as divid says,ji dian =duo shao dian,but we pretend to say as the first one.

Ji is used when the number is under 10 generally, or a lower number, duo shao is when it's a higher number.

Not as a rule, it just sounds better that way.
