A-(으)ㄴ 가요?, V-나요? (is/were….there?, is/was it…?, are/were you…? Do/did you…?) Are used politely and gently to ask somebody a question.
Adjectives (은)ㄴ 가요? is used. For verbs 나요 for future tense verbs use -(을)ㄹ 건가요? Use 은/ㄴ for present with adjectives. For past tense adjectives use 었/았나요?
Both of them should be "입니까" and "겁니까" in formal conversation respectively.^^
However in casual conversation "인가요" and "건가요" are often used instead.
They both are casual and polite a bit.^^
(*겁니까 is a contraction of "것 입니까?")
이것은 꽃입니까? is it a flower? (this kind of sentence is only found in a textbook^^)
이것은 꽃인가요? (more casual)
맞습니까? is it correct?
= 맞는 겁니까?
맞는 건가요? (casual a bit)
