Answer to Practice Telling Time with This HSK Quiz

Apr. 25, 2018

Answer: A

Xiànzài shì sān diǎn yí kè , shíjiān hái zǎo.
现   在  是  三   点  一  刻, 时间   还  早。
It is three o’clock now. It is still early.

刻 (): carve, engrave; quarter hour.

时 (Shí): time, hour.

秒 (Miǎo): a second.

In Chinese, we use “三点一刻 (sān diǎn yí kè)” to mean “a quarter pass three .” There are no expressions such as “三点一时 (sān diǎn yī shí)” or “三点一秒 (sān diǎn yī miǎo)” in Chinese. So A is the correct answer.
