Well, the context can affect the meaning here. For instance it might be "Is it OK from there?" (meaning e.g. "Should I start drawing my line from there?"). But if the context doesn't suggest anything like that, then I'm not sure. I could guess, but it'd be a guess. (I'm not particularly good with Japanese.) It might be something like "Is that why it's OK?"... but then, it might not.rachxo wrote:sore kara ii desu ka
I'm pretty sure that this would generally be "Is it OK if that's the case?" -- unless the "sore" refers to a noun, in which case, mentally substitute the noun. "Ringo nara ii desu ka?" (= "Is it OK if it's an apple?")sore nara ii desu ka?

Thank you all for the feedback! I would have provided more context but it was a fill in the blank and it didn't give me much. It was a scenario at a doctors office and the doctor asked the patient to sit on the table, etc etc.. and I had to choose an answer out of those ones. I should have included that - my bad! But anyways thank you again.
