After moving to a new place, friends are visiting Lao Wang. It turns out his wife has decided the curtains, carpet, etc.
HSK5 past exam H51224, questions 31 and 32
In this listening problem, I don't quite understand the nuance of the last question. I'm not 100% sure I'm hearing it correctly. I'm expecting this to be a joke of some kind. It says something like:
I finally couldn't help but ask: "This place is the same. Did you choose it?" Lao Wang thought for a bit and replied: "My wife."
This doesn't quite make sense to me. I feel like I'm missing something, noting it's possible I misheard something. (I was expecting a joke along the lines of "So, what about this place did you choose?" "My wife.")
Question: Am I mishearing 这房子里究竟哪一样, and if not, how do I understand it?
