Hello everyone!
Please, could someone tell me if this sentence is correct ?
What used to be like in the evening before there was TV?
Thank you very much! Suddenly, I seem to forget some grammar rules!!! Oups!

What did it use to be like in the evening before there was TV?
Used to ( in questions and negatives the �d � goes...) is part of the main verb phrase so you need to use the �standard � question and negation rules that you would use for a normal past simple sentence : QuASI (=Question word-Auxiliary-Subject-Infinitive=)
Good luck!
