I just got this in the 'pick from three' variety. I new that the 'to jest' option was wrong because 'jest' requires instrumental. And I realized that I don't know what phrases of the form 'to...' (without 'jest')' requires.
short answer : to jest+ nominative, to + nominative

What is the difference between uczucie and przeczucie?
The Polish prefix prze- is etymologically related to English pre-.
Knowing that you can guess that a "pre-feeling" is a hunch related to a future event, something like premonition.
Thank you, Alik. That makes perfect sense.
Why can't you say "to jest bardzo dziwnym uczuciem
Sentences built as "[It/This/That] is [noun phrase]" always take the noun phrase in the basic, Nominative form.
