comment Difference between 「なるベく」 and 「なるべき」
This is really clear. Thank you for your answer. I was led to believe なるべき was to be considered a single word too.

comment Difference between 「なるベく」 and 「なるべき」
I am led to believe those are not similar by the first comment and the second comment seems to indicate they are two forms of the same base, which makes them similar in at least one way. I do not have examples, I just remember hearing both and not being sure of how to interpret them.

comment Usage of -ないことになる
I am not really looking for a translation. Any answer can set up a context for examples, my main issue is that I do not remember precisely if this is correct and common grammar and how to use it correctly.

comment What is a word meaning “to ask”?
I think 「聞く」is the most basic way and suits your example. Depending on context you might also want to use 訪ねる・頼む.
