Aug. 29, 2018

Answer: D
Analysis:

Yìfāng shuǐtǔ yǎng yìfāng rén, yóuyú nánběi fāng dìlǐ wèizhì, qìhòu tiáojiàn de bùtóng,
一方水土养一方人。由于南北方地理位置、气候条件的不同,
rénmen gèzì de yǐnshí xíguàn yǔ yǐnshí wénhuà yě bújìn xiāngtóng.
人们各自的饮食习惯与饮食文化也不尽相同。
The unique features of a local environment always provide certain characteristics to its inhabitants. Due to the geographical location and climatic conditions in the north and south, people’s eating habits and food culture are not the same.

Zhōngguó de běifāng chǎn màizi, běifāngrén yíxiàng yǐ miànshí wéi zhǔ, tāmen
中国的北方产麦子,北方人一向以面食为主,他们喜欢吃饺子,面条。
xǐhuān chī jiǎozi, miàntiáo. Nánfāng chǎn dàmǐ, suǒyǐ nánfāngrén xǐhuān chī mǐfàn.
南方产大米,所以南方人喜欢吃米饭。
North China produces wheat, and northern Chinese food is dominated by noodles. They like to eat dumplings and noodles. South China produces rice, so southerners like to eat cooked rice.

Nánfāngrén xǐhuān chī miàntiáo.
南方人喜欢吃面条。
Southerners like to eat noodles.

Nánběi fāng de yǐnshí wénhuà xiāngtóng.
南北方的饮食文化相同。
The same food cultures exist in the north and the south.

Běifāng chǎn dàmǐ.
北方产大米。
Rice is produced in the north.

Běifāngrén xǐhuān chī miàntiáo.
北方人喜欢吃面条。
Northerners like to eat noodles.

Read the materials above, you would know:

“南方人喜欢吃米饭 (Nánfāngrén xǐhuān chī mǐfàn) Southerners like to eat rice.”
“南北方的饮食文化不同 (Nánběi fāng de yǐnshí wénhuà bùtóng) Different food cultures exist in the north and the south.”
“北方产麦子 (Běifāng chǎn màizi) Wheat is produced in the north.”
So, D is the correct answer.
