ใใฎ ใ—ใ‚ƒใ—ใ‚“ ใฏ ใ‚ใชใŸ____ใ‹๏ผŸ

The key to understanding the correct response "ใงใ—ใŸ" lies in comprehending how past tense works in Japanese grammar and the sentence structure.

1. Understanding the Sentence Structure:
– ใใฎ (sono) = that
– ใ—ใ‚ƒใ—ใ‚“ (shashin) = picture
– ใฏ (wa) = topic marker
– ใ‚ใชใŸ (anata) = you
– ใงใ™ใ‹ (desu ka) = is it? / is that?

When combined, "ใใฎ ใ—ใ‚ƒใ—ใ‚“ ใฏ ใ‚ใชใŸ ใงใ™ใ‹๏ผŸโ€ (Sono shashin wa anata desu ka?) translates to "Is that a picture of you?"

2. Past Tense Formation:
– In Japanese, the verb "ใงใ™" (desu) is used to describe a state of being and corresponds to the English "is/am/are."
– To make the sentence past tense (was/were), "ใงใ™" (desu) changes to "ใงใ—ใŸ" (dea).

3. Applying Past Tense to the Question:
– The question "ใใฎ ใ—ใ‚ƒใ—ใ‚“ ใฏ ใ‚ใชใŸ ใงใ™ใ‹?" becomes "ใใฎ ใ—ใ‚ƒใ—ใ‚“ ใฏ ใ‚ใชใŸ ใงใ—ใŸใ‹?" when asking about the past.
– "ใงใ—ใŸ" (dea) transforms the question to mean "Was that a picture of you?"

Romanized Characters:
– Sono shashin wa anata dea ka?

Understanding that "ใงใ—ใŸ" is simply the past tense form of "ใงใ™" is crucial for correctly interpreting and responding to questions about the past in Japanese grammar.
