comment Is でござる used in Modern Society?
I think ごさる is now archaic, so ございます is usually given its own dictionary entry.

comment Use and examples of 違う
These two things don't appear to be related, so it's probably best if you don't put them both in the same question.

comment How to parse どうかなさいましたか and what does it mean in English?
@FriendlyGhost You could also include ござる in that list, too (people say ございます rather than ござります). I think the reason it isn't listed on that website is because ござる is archaic, so ございます is considered a separate word now. But if you look at it historically, it belongs with the other four honorific verbs.

comment Odd misconceptions of question particle かい
Dunno. People's misconceptions come from a lot of places: ① It's hard to learn a foreign language. ② It's hard to describe your own native language accurately. ③ People learn from other people who've made mistakes because of the first two points. ④ Language use varies from place to place, year to year, and speaker to speaker, so a description might be right at one place and time for one speaker, but wrong at another place and time for another speaker. If any of these mistakes are successful enough, they become "misconceptions", I suppose...

comment Using both と and を with the verb 言う?
The answers on that question don't appear to answer this one, so I'd rather leave this open.

I can't tell what 'it is available to recognize delicious' is intended to mean.

comment Can “が” ever mark the direct object?
I'm ignoring whether が would be replaced with は if example ① were really used as a complete sentence. It's simpler theoretically to start with が, and we'd have to use が anyway in the relative clause, so I thought talking about は would be a distraction.

comment Can “が” ever mark the direct object?
It can easily be argued that the answer to 'Can が ever mark a direct object?' is 'yes' (see The Oxford Handbook of Japanese Linguistics, pages 141-155), but I don't think that's really relevant to your example sentence. I think the problem you're having here is parsing the sentence properly.
