Yeah, you use the superlative. I am not so sure about that. What is the most
preferable really doesn't fit my ear when you compare two things. But it is
probably cleaner than my version, I see why use it. But I would like to know
is my sentence grammatical? (nuq qaq law' nuq qaq puS) Can it be done, I mean
two {nuq}s in one sentence?

Umm, I doubt there is really anything to explain. They need to be memorised
and one should concentrate on the absence/person/plurality of the object
and not write automatically as some of us are likely to do. That's all.
No explaining necessary. I know perfectly well that I say
jISop. qagh vISop. qagh DaSop DaneH'a' je? HIja', yISop! bISopchugh bIghungHa'.
But sometimes I just don't pay enough attention to the prefix. Qu'vatlh! {{:^(
