Answer to Put This Chinese Conversation in Order And Find out When to Go to Sleep!

Nov. 28, 2018

Answer: A
Analysis:

Rúguǒ yào xiǎng tígāo shuìmián zhìliàng, nǐ bìxū zhùyì rùshuì de shíjiān.
如果要想提高睡眠质量,你必须注意入睡的时间。
If you want to improve the quality of sleep, you must pay attention to the time you fall asleep.

Yǒu shùjù biǎomíng zuìjiā rùshuì shíjiān duàn shì wǎnshàng jiǔ diǎn dào shí yí diǎn.
有数据表明最佳入睡时间段是晚上 9 点到 11 点。
The data shows that the best time to fall asleep is from 9pm to 11pm.

Yīnwèi zhè duàn shíjiān réntǐ jīnglì xiàjiàng,
因为这段时间人体精力下降,
Because, during this period of time, the body’s energy drops and the response slows down.

Suǒyǐ gèngjiā yǒu zhù yú wǒmen jìnkuài jìnrù mèngxiāng.
所以更加有助于我们尽快进入梦乡。
So, it helps us to fall asleep as soon as possible.

This quiz is a short paragraph in the disordered sequence. After reading these four sentences, we get a general idea that the conversation is about the best time to fall asleep.
First, we can be sure that Sentence 2 should be put before Sentence 1 in that there are a pair of associated phrases: “因为 (yīnwèi) because” And “所以 (suǒyǐ) so.”

(Do You Know How to Use “BECAUSE” and “SO” in Chinese?)

Then, we can try to construct the logical order of this paragraph. Firstly, the speaker provides the suggested time for falling asleep to help improve sleep quality. Secondly, the speaker introduces the best time to fall asleep. Lastly, the speaker explains the choice of the period of time. Of all sentences, only Sentence 3 and Sentence 4 have a clear subject, “入睡时间 (rùshuì shíjiān) the time to fall asleep.” After comparing these two sentences, we know we should put Sentence 3 as the first one according to the logical order of this paragraph.

Finally, we can determine the right order to be 3-4-2-1.
