Answer to HSK Quiz: Shén me dōu bù (什么都不), Zěn me yě bù (怎么也不) or Nǎ ér dōu bù (哪儿都不)

Jun. 9, 2022

Answer:

1. C

2. A

3. B

Analysis:

1. Wǒ jīn tiān nǎ ér dōu bù xiǎnɡ qù,    jiù xiǎnɡ zài jiā kàn diàn shì.
1. 我  今   天  哪 儿   都  不   想    去 , 就   想    在  家  看   电   视 。
I don’t feel like going anywhere today, I just want to stay home and watch TV.

The blank should be filled in a location. ”哪儿都不想去nǎ ér dōu bù xiǎnɡ qù” means ”don’t want to go anywhere.” When the interrogative word “哪儿nǎ ér” is combined with “都不dōu bù”, it means “don’t want to go anywhere.”

2. Tā shén me dōu bù chī,  zhǐ shì zài nà lǐ kū.
2. 他   什   么   都   不 吃 ,只 是  在 那 里 哭 。
He doesn’t eat anything today, he just keeps crying.

“什么都不shén me dōu bù”…… means “don’t do(or other verbs) anything.”

3. Sū xī jīn tiān zěn me yě bù yuàn yì xué xí,      jiù zài nà lǐ wán yóu xì.
3. 苏 西 今  天   怎  么  也 不    愿  意   学 习 , 就 在  那 里 玩   游  戏 。
Susie doesn’t want to study at all today, she’s just playing games all the time.

“怎么也/都不…… zěn me yě/ dōu bù” means “don’t want to do something at all”
