Answer to the Exercise on the New Year’s Greetings in Chinese

Answer: C
As a greeting on New Year’s Day, Chinese people usually say, “‘新年好!(Xīnnián hǎo!),’ or ‘新年快乐!(Xīnnián kuàilè!)’ Happy New Year.”


Zhānɡ Wěi: Xīnnián hǎo, Lǐ Hóng.
张       伟:    新年     好, 李 红。

Zhang Wei: Happy New Year, Li Hong.
Lǐ Hóng: Xīnnián hǎo, Zhāng Wěi.
李 红:  新年      好, 张        伟。

Li Hong: Happy New Year, Zhang Wei.


Wáng Huá: Zhāng Lì, zhù nǐ xīnnián kuàilè!
王      华:  张       丽,祝 你 新年     快乐!

Wang Hua: Happy New Year to you, Zhang Li!
Zhāng Lì: Xièxie! Xīnnián kuàilè!
张       丽:谢谢! 新年    快乐!

Zhang Li: Thank you! Happy New Year!

In the test, “新年好!(Xīnnián hǎo!)” and “新年快乐!(Xīnnián kuàilè!)” are commonly used as New Year’s greetings. We don’t say “新年开心!(Xīnnián kāixīn!).” So the answer is C.
