Minna no Nihongo Answer Chapter 8 B8

Posted on

In this article, we are still presenting the usage of adjective on modifying noun. Based on the information and also picture which is displayed in Minna no Nihongo 1 book chapter 8 section B part 7 in page 68 we have to answer the question. But in this context we are using interrogative pronoun ‘dore’ which can be translated as ‘which one’. In form of conversation, there is a person whom ask which one is the item which is being discussed and the other person answer by using adjective describing the noun which is being pointed. By using the adjective as a modifier of the noun, the person whom ask will be aware of the item which is being pointed out as the answer. Below is the examples in form of question and answer pair as a simple conversation  :

Example               :

Kanji                      :



Hiragana              :



Romaji                  :

Tomodachi no tomaru hoteru wa dore desuka.

。。。ano takai tatemono desu。

Dore (どれ)in the above example is an interrogative pronoun which is used to ask which one of the item is being discussed.

The answer is in the form of the item which is asked but it is modified with an adjective.
