What about “Does the chocolate cost a lot?”

Why is "suklaa" translated as "the chocolate"? Shouldn't "suklaa" in the partitive rather be translated as "chocolate" without the definite article, since partitive implies an indefinite amount?

There is no partitive here. "Suklaa" with a partitive case ending is "suklaata".
