The correct answer to this quiz is B.

The sentence “他很牛 (Tā hěn niú),” means he’s outstanding or excellent. The proper meaning of  “牛 (niú)” is cow, but nowadays it’s also used to say something is “cool,” “awesome,” or “excellent. ” The meaning originated from the north-eastern Chinese dialect. You can say both “你好牛啊 (nǐ hǎo niú a)” or “真牛(zhēn niú)” to express your admiration of others.
