Answer to A Fun Lesson on Asking Someone’s Name in Chinese

Jun. 19, 2019

Answer:
1. A

Analysis:

Xiǎo Lǐ : Nǐ hǎo, jiàndào nǐ hěn gāoxìng, qǐngwèn nǐ ▁▁?
小李:你好,见到你很高兴,请问你 ▁▁?
Xiao Li: Nice to meet you , May I know ▁▁?

Xiǎo Wáng: Wǒ xìng Wáng, jiào Wáng Píng.
小王:我姓王,叫王平。
Xiao Wang: My last name is Wang, and my name is Wang Ping.

A. 叫什么名字 (Jiào shénme míngzi)
A. What your name is

B. 来自哪里 (Láizì nǎlǐ)
B. Where you are from

C. 多大了 (Duōdà le)
C. How old you are

D. 要去哪里 (Yào qù nǎlǐ)
D. Where you are going

We can use context clues such as Xiao Wang’s response, “我姓王,叫王平。 (Wǒ xìng Wáng, jiào Wáng Píng.) My last name is Wang, and my name is Wang Ping.” to assume that she was asked her name. Answer A from the selection list, “你叫什么名字 (nǐ jiào shénme míngzi) what your name is” is a question used when asking “What’s your name?”.

Xiǎo Lǐ : Nǐ hǎo, jiàndào nǐ hěn gāoxìng, qǐngwèn nǐ jiào shénme míngzi?
小李:你好,见到你很高兴,请问你叫什么名字?
Xiao Li: Nice to meet you , May I know your name?

Hence, answer A is the best choice.
