Hello Masato,


Thank you for your interesting question.

Yes. "jonka" (whose) is in the genitive and genitive-accusative singular form of "joka." it answers the question whose, in this case, K-kaupan Väiski character. As this comment space is too limited to answer this kind of wide-scale question, I kindly ask you to ask for more information from your own teacher if you are a premium plus subscriber.


Let us know if you have any question.

Cheers,

Thanks.

I listened carefully therefore I noticed and pointed out the editing has not been properly finished. I have encountered similar things in other lessons, too. Please try to improve them, thank you!
