B. “要 (yào)” means to want.

C. “去 ()” means to go.

D. “想 (xiǎng)” means to think.

In this test, the measure word “个 (), ” which is more often used in spoken language is used to modify the nouns for dishes. But the measure word “盘 (pán)” is often used in written form and during formal occasions, e.g. 一盘麻婆豆腐 (yì pán Mápó dòufu) Ma Po Tofu.
