Mini-test Answers: Under the table. (Beginner)

Jun. 30, 2011

Beginner Level 初级 (chūjí)

The right answer for this Online Mandarin test is D.

Translation:

    Lǎogōng, nǐ zhīdào wǒ de xiàngliàn zài nǎ ma?
A: 老公,     你  知道   我   的    项链    在  哪 吗?
    My husband, do you know where my necklace is?

    Kàn, xiàngliàn zài zhuōzi xiàmian.
B: 看, 项链        在   桌子     下面。
    Look, the necklace is under the table.

“桌子 (zhuōzi)” means “table.”

“椅子 (yǐzi)” means “chair.”

“下面 (xiàmian)” means “under.”

“上面 (shàngmian) on top of ” is the antonym of “下面 (xiàmian) under.”

The grammar point in this Online Mandarin test: How to make sentences using prepositions of place?

The verb “在 (zài)” indicates existence. When it serves as the main element of the predicate, the word order is as follows:
somebody/something + “在 (zài)” + place + preposition. 

For examples:

Xuéxiào zài chāoshì hòumian.
学校       在     超市     后面。
The school is behind the supermarket.

Māma zài shūdiàn qiánmian.
妈妈    在  书店     前面。
My mom is in front of the bookstore.
