    how about "Is the red car?" Red is adjective modifies noun(car).

    Besides that, any example for noun modifies adjective?


    Thank You :)

    The question seems incomplete, so you will need at least something like this:
    Is the red car yours?, or something.

    Of all possible questions, that one seems the best solution, to me.


    PS
    It's only now that I've spotted your previous post, in which you wrote the same question. oops
