There is a certain grammar on this article to be discussed. It is about how to ask preference of some item or matter. The preference is whether the subject like the item or the matter or not. It is displayed in Minna no Nihongo 1 book chapter 9 section B part 1 in page 75 where we have to answer the question regarding the grammar. Below is the examples of the question which is displayed in the book to give a further understanding to answer the question and using the grammar pattern :

Example               :

Hiragana              :



Romaji                  :

Oneesan wa nihon dorama ga suki desuka.

。。。hai, daisuki desu。

Meaning              :

Does your older sister like Japanese drama?

。。。yes, (she) like it a lot.

In the above example, the grammar pattern which is going to be discussed is ‘ga suki’. In the above context, it is modified into an interrogative sentence asking whether subject like a certain item or matter or not and the focus of it is in noun. It is also natural that in general the answer could be like or dislike. Below is the grammar pattern :

Kanji : 主語 + + 名詞 + + 好き + ですか
Hiragana : しゅご + + めいし + + すき + ですか
Romaji : shugo + wa + meishi + ga + suki + desuka
Meaning : subject + particle wa + noun + particle ga + like + desuka
