Answer to Chinese Antonyms Pairs 101: Can You Identify Them in Chinese?

Mar. 20, 2019

Answer:
1. B

Analysis:

Dàxiàng de bízi cháng, ér tùzi de wěibā duǎn.
大象的鼻子长,而兔子的尾巴短。
The elephant’s nose is long, while the rabbit’s tail is short.

Xiǎo Jūn yǐqián hěn pàng, xiànzài hěn shòu.
小军以前很胖,现在很瘦。
Xiao Jun used to be really fat, and now he is very thin.

The answer B is wrong, because “高 (gāo) tall” is used to described “个子 (gèzi)” which means height/stature, not “力气 (lìqì) strength.” So the correct form is:

Xiǎo Míng gèzi ǎi, dànshì lìqì dà.
小明个子矮,但是力气大。
Xiao Ming is short, but he has a lot of strength.
