Mini-Test Answer: 要 (yào) (Beginner)

Jun. 2, 2011

Beginner Level 初级 (chūjí)

The correct answer to this test is B.

Analysis:   

A. “买 (mǎi)” means to buy.

B. “要 (yào)” means to want.

C. “去 ()” means to go.

Yes, but 想要 means to want fervently. The emotion is stronger.

It also means to want. But it is not used as 要 at restaurants. I learned it from my online Chinese resources.

What about 想要?

This is very funny but I am in the start and there are many questions.
