Are you sure you copied the question correctly? If so , the sentence "父や母が元気だといいんですか?" would mean: Do you think it is okay as long as your father and mother are well. This sentence does not make much sense the context. I suspect the sentence was: 父や母が元気だといいんですが。 This means that I hope my parents are fine. Anyway, 元気だ is the end-form of the na-adjective.
Hi, Anchun-san. You are not confused. You simply have't learned ・・・といいですね。 It means "I hope ......(for somebody else)." The "・・・" takes non-polite sentence forms such as 元気だ、おいしい、行く、行かない etc.
Anchun-san, ,,, I-adjectives: 父や母が優しい + といいんですが。Just as it is / Na-adjectives: 父や母が親切だ + といいんですが。Use だ instead of な
What do you think the answer should be? The correct answer is 4. 元気 is a "na" adjective.
