Mini-Test Answer: distraught

Apr. 10, 2012

Beginner Level 初级 (chūjí)

The right answer to the test is C.

Translation:

Qīn, nǐ juéde wǒ chuān nǎ jiàn bǐjiào hǎo ne?
Mary: 亲,你觉得 我    穿      哪 件  比较    好 呢?
Honey, which one do you think looks better on me?

Zhè jiàn bú cuò.
Anne: 这 件   不  错。
This one.

Kě wǒ juéde yánsè bú tài hǎo. Zhè jiàn zěnmeyàng?
Mary: 可我 觉得    颜色   不 太 好。 这    件   怎么样?
But I don’t like the color. What about this one?

Kěyǐ, dàn gǎnjué bú tài zhèngshì.
Anne: 可以,但 感觉 不  太   正式。
It’s OK, but I think it’s not appropriate for the situation.

Ài, wǒ gāi chuān shénme ya? Zhēn shì tóu dà a!
Mary: 哎,我该 穿       什么      呀?真   是   头 大啊!
Oh, what should I wear? My head hurts!

Analysis:

The term “头大 (tóu dà)” means to be in a state of confusion in English. It means that someone is very distraught because he or she has no idea how to solve a problem.

Example:

Bāng wǒ kànxià zhège xuǎnzétí zěnme zuò?
Jack: 帮    我    看下     这个   选择题    怎么    做?
Can you help me solve this difficult question?

Ài, wǒ yě zhèng tóu dà ne.
Tom: 哎,我也 正      头   大呢。
Oh, it greatly confuses me also.
