I have corrected it already!
Is there a different between その日 and あの日?
その日 is used to express something objective, あの日 is used to express something subjective.
Any polite forms?
どのマンガが好きですか？=Which manga do you like?
どのゲームは好きですか？= Which game do you like?
どの猫が好きですか？= Which cat do you like?
この女は私のお母さんです=This woman is my mother.
あの本が好きです= I like that book.
@Soul–Fist, マンガ should be spelled using kanji as 漫画.
Is it possible to say それ車は彼の車です。instead of その車は彼の車です。？
Nope, because それ acts like a “Noun”. But その acts like a “adj”. although they are pronouns.
I have a question please 🙂
What’s the difference between どのand どれ？
Is the first one only being said when comparsation of something already mentioned? Like どの車は好きですか？or どの料理好きですか？
どれ is a replacement of Noun itself.
But どの need to be used as 「どの＋Noun」，You can not use どの alone.
書 it should be illegal for this kanji to exist look @ it
nevermind if you look at the rules for kanji stroke orders it becomes easier
