tatli


Explanation:
The only translation of "sweet" is "tatli". The word "seker" should be translated as "sugar" and therefore this is a wrong translation.
In turkish the word tatli=sweet can be used to define a sweet food or drink, but also to define something which you like (persons included).

tatli, hos, güzel


Explanation:
the right meaning depends on the context. if u refere to a person the three words above could apply.If u refere to a sugary or sweety sort of food then "tatli" is better applicable.
