comment Standard, common ways of phrasing questions of the form “How was…” ?
Additional question: what about asking about objects? Example, after you know someone's laptop broke and they were getting it fixed, "How is your laptop?" Somehow I assume Comment est ton portable? is not quite right.

comment When should a direct object pronoun be ommitted?
"Ma chiere amie, que avez ? Feras ?" .... what. I gather "chiere" is old French for "cher"...but...."que avez"...where's the contraction!!

These conversations are as useful to me as the answer itself. Both viewpoints noted. I often will say something one way, and if I get a blank stare for one reason or another, I try saying it a different way. It's a process!

Ha I can always read cl-r's answers. Mon abilité de lire en français est très bien developpé; c'est mon abilité de comprendre le français à l'orale qui est terriblement faible. Malgré ça, il y a parfois des choses qui je ne comprends pas, et puis je crée une question ici comme celui-ci!

And did you mean ce sur quoi in the second to last example sentence?

comment What does “ce sur quoi” mean?
"Préciser comment il faut faire" ? "Specify how he needs to do"?

comment “Ce à quoi” vs “à quoi”?
I also cannot ascertain ANY difference between "J'ignore à quoi il s'abonne." and "J'ignore ce à quoi il s'abonne," two of your examples where one apparently has a relative subordination clause and the other has an indirect interrogative clause.

"Je ne sais pas combien il y a de jours dans l'année." is that really how you say that? Not "...combien de jours il y a dans l'année" ?

I also had to look up porter sur, I didn't know that combination.

What is plait-il ? I do not understand. Is that a different plait than plaît?
