Is this correct grammar — “which feature in C/C++ don’t you like?”

The question in question is this:

Which feature in C/C++ don’t you like?

Just wanted to know if that is proper way of asking. Not sure if “don’t you like” is the right way there.


Yes, it’s correct grammar. Don’t is informal, so not suitable for, e.g., a manufacturer’s survey; it’s unusual to say ‘feature’ (either ‘features’ or ‘single feature’ to emphasize what you want); and a pedant might point out that you don’t actually like all the features you’ve never thought about, so dislike would be better. But these are points of style, and much depends on the context.
