  • Dyna says:

    I think if you used 好きな本はなんですか? What is your favorite book or 好きな食べ物は would have made more sense. な is used to describe something so just saying
    “I like this book” doesn’t really correlate well.

  • vita says:

    I think this is worst example of all listed adjectives because “like” in the english sentence is not adjective but verb. Maybe “Korewa (watashi no) sukina hon desu” “This is my favorite book” would be better. A beginner like me can be confused. Without particle “na”, it would be better chose another adjective. Eg. “Kono hito wa youmei desu” (This person is famous).
