This is the transcript for questions 26-30 on the HSK6 past exam H61006 (starting 18m30s):









There are two questions I'm having problems with here:

  1. 关于财富目标,女的是什么观点?
    • A. 顺其自然
    • B. 多多益善
    • C. 要保守一些
    • D. 一定要明确
  1. 关于中国女性就业,下列哪项正确?
    • A. 就业率比西方国家高
    • B. 年轻女性更有竞争力
    • C. 喜欢选择稳定的工作
    • D. 在管理层所占比例很大

I highlight the answers in bold.

I don't see how I can infer these answers from the given interview. In my mind, the answer Question 28 is 应该有基本的财富保障, which is not an option. And for Question 30, she says 女性就业普遍比西方国家发达, but I'm not clear on what it means for 就业 = "employment" to be 发达 = "developed", and how it implies answer A.

Question: How do I infer the answers 28. 顺其自然 and 30. 就业率比西方国家高?

  1. 关于财富目标,女的是什么观点?
  • A. 顺其自然(let nature take its course)

  • B. 多多益善(the more the better)

  • C. 要保守一些(must be conservative)

  • D. 一定要明确(must be clear-cut/definite)



The key lies in the phrase "可遇不可求的", which means "something can only be found by chance, and not through aggressively seeking." In the other word, it says "don't force the issue, let nature take its course - 顺其自然." Throughout the paragraph, nothing is ever close to the choice "B", "C", or "D", so the answer is "A".

  1. 关于中国女性就业,下列哪项正确?
  • A. 就业率比西方国家高

  • B. 年轻女性更有竞争力

  • C. 喜欢选择稳定的工作

  • D. 在管理层所占比例很大

"女:在中国,女性就业普遍比西方国家发达(developed/flourishing),但高层管理层的女性比例仍然是非常少的。"" This sentence clearly indicated "D" is false. Then, throughout the paragraph, there is no mention of "age" or "work safety", therefore, "B" and "C" are dropped out of consideration. Now, only "A" remains the possible choice.


Question one: 至于你未来会有多少财富,这是可遇不可求的。 可遇不可求 is somewhat synonymous to 顺其自然。

Question two: 发达 is developed. I believe when you say developed in this scenario, it really means "something is more/better in quantity or quality". This is a case of the word "developed" used flexibly.

Quoting my high school teacher, on multiple choices,

Choose the wrongest from the wrongs and the rightest from the rights (错中选错,对中选优)
