    A verb(including adjective) in formal declarative sentences end with "-다", and "-까" is added instead of "-다" when questioning.:)

    This is an apple = 이것은 사과입니다.(formal)
    Is this an apple? = 이것은 사과입니까?

    I love you = 나는 당신을 사랑합니다.
    Do you love me? = 당신은 저를 사랑합니까?


    입니다 used in positive sentence and 입니까? Used fn negative sentence
    So 사랑합니다 means 'I love you' and 사랑합니까? Means ' am I love you'....

    '입니다' is declarative sentence. '입니까' is Interrogative sentences .

    Here is an example..
    사랑입니다. (This is love)
    사랑입니까? (Is this love?)

    사랑합니다. (I love you)
    -> '사랑합니까?' needs an object.
    (사랑합니까? /그남자를/그녀를/무엇을?)
    (Do you love him/her/or something?)
