Mini-Test Answer: Either

Jul. 27, 2011

Beginner Level 初级 (chūjí)

The correct answer for this online Chinese test is C.

Translation:

   Jīntiān chī jiǎozi háishì chī miàntiáo?
A:今天    吃 饺子   还是    吃   面条?
   What do you want to eat today, dumplings or noodles?

   Dōu xíng.
B: 都   行。
   Either is okay.

Analysis:

The Chinese phrase “还是 (háishì)” means “or” in English. It is usually used in interrogative sentences to offer a choice.

For example:
Nǐ xǐhuan hóngsè háishì lǜsè?
你 喜欢  红色       还是  绿色?
What color do you like, red or green?

The phrase “都行 (dōu xíng)” is a frequently-used saying to answer an interrogative sentence and means that the answerer is okay with any choice.
