Answer to From Folklore to Reality! How Chang’e Became Modern History!

Feb. 8, 2019

Answers:
1. D
2. B

Analysis:
Xiǎo Míng: Zhòng bàng xiāoxi! Zhòng bàng xiāoxi!
小明:重磅消息!重磅消息!
Xiao Ming: Big news! Big news!

Xiǎo Hóng: Zěnmele?
小红:怎么了?
Xiao Hong: what’s wrong?

Xiǎo Míng: Cháng’é sì hào chénggōng dēnglù yuèqiú la!
小明:嫦娥四号成功登陆月球啦。
Xiao Ming: The Chang’e 4 lunar probe landed on the moon successfully.

For the first question, we see “重磅 (zhòng bàng),” “重 (zhòng)” means heavy and “磅 (bàng)” is a unit of measurement, so put together this means “heavy/serious” news, which translates to “Big News!”

As for the second answer, as you can see from the dialogue, Xiao Ming is talking about the successful landing on the moon, and so the answer is B!
