"This house is very expensive."

Translation:यह घर बहुत महँगा है।

Why isn’t it इस घर ? Would it work if it said this: “इस घर बहुत महँगा है”


इस is the oblique case form of यह. It is only used when it's the object of a postposition. Eg: इस घर का दाम ज़्यादा है। - 'The price of this house is high' where we have used इस because the noun phrase इस घर is the object of the postposition का.
