hello. i have some examples about cases and i guess i need help.

Nominative Kas? medis tree
Genitive Ko? medžio tree's
Dative Kam? aš noriu padėti medžiui i want to help to a tree
Accusative Ka? aš pamačiau medį i saw a tree
İnstrumental Kuo? as žaviuosi šiuo medžiu i admire this tree
Locative Kur? medyje in a tree
Vokative Tree!

for instrumental case this sentence doesnt answer the question with whom or with what. so how do we understand if it is instrumental or not? :?:

Some verbs just require instrumental.

Mes ieškome gero gyvenimo
We are looking for a good life

Ieškoti - to search/look - requires genetive

Aš pasitikiu tavimi
I trust in you

Pasitikėti - to trust - requires instrumental

When you learn a new verb, it's good to check what cases go with it.

Also your verb (žavėtis) requires instrumental.
