Hello everyone!
I'm new to the Japanese language and I have a doubt about the use of "demo ii desu".
If you want to say "is it OK to use a credit card?" I learnt you have to say "kaado demo ii desu ka?" but why is there no "wa" to mark "kaado" as topic of the verb "desu"?
Thank you a lot!

First, "kaado" is not the topic in that sentence. "De" indicates standard there, and "mo" means "too/also".
Second, "desu" is not a verb. It's not copula, either. "Desu" after i-adjectives is a non-conjugate polite suffix.
