What is the capital of Tunisia?

What does “cela” mean in the following sentence?

Without cela, the sentence is:

Combien de temps prend-il pour faire la correspondance ?

In this case, we basically assume “il” to be someone, as in
“How long does he take to make a connection?”.

So we add a cela:

Combien de temps cela prend-il pour faire la correspondance ?
Which means, “How long does it take to make a connection?”

Actually, the interrogative form of “X fait” (replace “X” by any subject except “il, elle, on” and “fait” by any verb) is not “fait-X…?”
but “X fait-il…?”. See

Combien de temps cela fait-il que nous ne nous sommes pas vus?

Cela fait 3 ans.


Combien de temps cela va-t-il durer ?

Cela va durer une heure.

But also

Quel problème Marc a-t-il rencontré ?

Comment Marie fait-elle pour supporter ça ?

Combien de fois ton chien est-il sorti de sa niche ?
