Mary: 周末 去 逛街 吧， 圣诞节 很多 东西 都 打折 呢。
Let’s go shopping this weekend. Many things will be on discount for Christmas.
“打折 (dǎzhé)” is a verb phrase which means “discount/be on sale.” “折扣 (zhékòu)” is a noun phrase which also means “discount.” During festivals, there are many special sales, so people always choose to do some shopping at these times. In the quiz, Mary asked Lana to go shopping because Christmas was coming and many things would be on sale.
