"Which day of January is the show date?"
Translation:ʻO ka lā ʻehia o Ianuali ka lā hōʻike?

This one seems very similar to the sentence "The trip is on which day of January?" which is translated as "Aia ka huakaʻi ma ka lā ʻehia o Ianuali?" I guess this one is an equational ʻO sentence because it is basically "Which date in January" = "The show date" as opposed to the other example where it is asking which date the trip is "on" in January?
I think that get right in a translation it is already a difficult thing, and when you need to guess beyond the translation how the answer is being said it is barely zero chances to get right, like in this case it is written in Hawaiin something like "Which date of January is the show?" And the sentence in English is written in other way with another idea like "Which 'day' of January is the "show date"?... So in this case I missed which is the point.
