Quiz Love ItLove It WINWIN

A Chinese Quiz? Nope, it’s more like a picture puzzle!

Chinese characters are so complicated. They can be formed up by a few individual characters like you see in the examples above or different “parts” or strokes. There are even words that changed its form slightly when used to combine with others into a word, complicated, huh?

To simplify things, you can think of each individual words/parts/strokes as “alphabets” and they add up to form a word.

Now, this quiz is fairly simple. I won’t be asking you to learn the characters, but I’d jumble some characters up and ask you to try guess what characters they can form. Take it as a picture puzzle game and you’ll find it easier 🙂

Hint: look carefully at the strokes.

    • Hmm… it’s difficult to explain… it’s all in the cover picture.
      A Chinese character is formed by different “parts” or “strokes” take the first row in the cover picture forming the character which means “interesting/interest”… it’s formed by 3 individual “parts” (words in this case).

      You can think of each of the “parts” that joins up to form the character which means “interesting/interest” as alphabets. They just will be “piece together” to form a word. So you could think of one “part” as “A” another as “C” and then another as “E”, piece them up and you get “ACE”.

      I just jumble up the “parts” and have you guessed how they would piece up. But because not everyone knows chinese characters, I make it so that you can count or observe the strokes (say direction and shape) to get the right answer. Just try to piece the individual “parts” in the boxes and you’ll get the answer.
