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

1. B


Dàxiàng de bízi cháng, ér tùzi de wěibā duǎn.
The elephant’s nose is long, while the rabbit’s tail is short.

Xiǎo Jūn yǐqián hěn pàng, xiànzài hěn shòu.
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.
Xiao Ming is short, but he has a lot of strength.
