Affirmative and Negative forms of いAdjectives

 

〜い ですか = Is it____? e.g.

But how about な-Adjectives? These we cannot inflect with -く ありません/ ない です So...we have to add じゃ ありません or ない です to the な-Adjective. e.g. りっぱ じゃ ありません

 

pretty, clean

spendid

 

Say in Japanese:

 

old university

small building

splendid hospital

new bank

big post office

famous teacher

Now rephrase these as questions: Is it a....? And reply.
