Can some1 explain these question answers?

Choose the odd one that doesn’t fit into the group.

nǎr

ma
le - ( correct )

Also, why can't shídiǎn èrkè can't be used? doesn't èrkè mean 2 quarters which is half past?

All of the followings can be used to refer to “half past ten” except:

shídiǎn sānshífēn
shídiǎnbàn
chà sānshífēn shíyīdiǎn
shídiǎn èrkè - ( correct )

nar/ji/ma = question words

erke is wrong because people just say ban 半. I suppose you would eventually be understood saying "erke" but it is akin to a native English speaker saying "10 oclock and 30 of 60 minutes"

Shi dian sanshifen

shi dian ban

These two are correct, the rest of the two are not used, although people can still undertand u, but maybe with their eye brows raised. LOL. I see you are a very logical thinker, good good.

Happy learning!
