Answer to What’s the Difference between “保护(bǎohù),” “保持(bǎochí),” and “保留(bǎoliú)”?

Sep. 23, 2015

Answer: B

To understand the correct answer to the quiz we need to first make clear the different meanings of these three similar words: “保护(bǎohù)” means “to protect,” “保持(bǎochí)” is “to remain or keep,” and “保留(bǎoliú)” means “to continue to have/to preserve.”

Examples:

Bǎohù huánjìng hěn zhòngyào.
保护     环境       很   重要。
It is important to protect our environment.

Qǐng bǎochí gānjìng.
请      保持    干净。
Please keep this place clean.

Wǒmen yào bǎoliú shílì.
我们       要  保留   实力。
We need to preserve our strength.

In the quiz, we should keep quiet when class begins, so the correct answer is B.
