Answer to Changing This Chinese Sentence Order Will Leave You Scratching Your Head

Mar. 13, 2019

Answer:
1. B

Analysis:

Mary: Wǒ chīfàn shì wèi le gōngzuò.
Mary: 我吃饭是为了工作。
Mary: I eat for work.

Lì Li: Wǒ gōngzuò shì wèi le měishí.
丽丽: 我工作是为了美食。
Li Li: I work for delicious food.

As we can see from the dialogue, we speculate that Mary may be a gourmet critic, gourmet blogger, or someone else who needs to eat. Therefore he has to eat for his work. Li Li, on the other hand, explains that she chose the job to pay for delicious food and that the point of her work is to be able to eat more delicious food.

Therefore, the correct answer is B.
