Answer to One of These Characters Could Be Your Soul Mate (Part II)

Nov. 9, 2018

Answer:

1. A

Analysis:

Lì Lì: Nǐ shǔ shénme shēngxiào?
丽丽: 你属什么 生肖?
LiLi: What’s your zodiac?

Xiǎo Hóng: Wǒ shǔ zhū, nǐ ne?
小红: 我属猪,你呢?
Xiao Hong: My zodiac is the pig. How about you?

Lì Lì: Wǒ bǐ nǐ dà, wǒ shǔ gǒu.
丽丽: 我比你大, 我属狗。
LiLi: I’m older than you, my zodiac is dog.

Since China’s culture doesn’t traditionally use “星座 (xīngzuò) constellations” and asking someone what their “动物 (dòngwù) animal” is, isn’t a natural pattern of speech when asking a question, so the best answer is “生肖 (shēngxiào) zodiac.”
