Answer to Making Comparative Chinese Sentences with “比(bǐ)” and “比较(bǐjiào)”

Answer: B
This test is about comparative Chinese sentences. Generally speaking, the most commonly used sentence structures is:  “A + 比/没 + B + adj.” (A is more/less ____ than B.)


Wáng Líng méi Lǐ Hóng piàoliang.
王       玲    没  李 红      漂亮。
Wang Ling is less beautiful than Li Hong.

Wáng dōng  bǐ  tā dìdi pàng.
王       东     比  他 弟弟 胖。
Wang Dong is fatter than his younger brother.

As for option C in the test, “比较(bǐjiào)” means “compare or comparatively.” When used as a verb, we usually say “someone + 拿 + A + 和 + B + 相比较” meaning “someone compares A and B.” When used as an adverb, we can say “A + 比较 + adj.” meaning “A is comparatively + adj.”


Wǒ ná Xiǎodōng hé Xiǎomíng xiāngbǐjiào.
我   拿  小东        和 小明         相比较。
I compare Xiaodong and Xiaoming.

Xiǎodōng bǐjiào gāo.
小东         比较  高。
Xiaodong is comparatively tall.

In our test, Xiaodong is taller than Xiaoming. In Chinese, that is, “小东比小明高(Xiǎodōng bǐ Xiǎomíng gāo),” so the correct answer is B.
