It's correct to put 〇 as I've seen it in Chinese test papers before and they've existed since ages ago too, making it valid to put, but of course it's better to put 零 compared to 〇, as it seems more completed and formal.
Whichever of these characters is better, problem remains that in this excersize it is not pronounced. Does it mean there is no sound to it?
"O" isn't really a character so it's probably not in the software's database or however it works. So technically is doesn't have a "sound" but when you see it here and read it out loud you say ling (零)
It appears to say "ling" on the female voice for O - once again, the female voice is BETTER and should be the MAIN voice teaching the course.
You can see it often on address plaques in China. I couldn't find an example of one with zeros but you can see how the lane (弄） number on this one is spelled out on the bottom of this sign: https://goo.gl/images/ZRgL19 If the lane number was something like 1020 it would say 一〇二〇弄. It's also commonly used to write out the date, such as on this video game: https://goo.gl/GG2v2P
I believe ancient Chinese writing did use circles; e.g., a circle with a spot in the center developed into the modern, "squared" character 日, for "sun."
213 would be spoken as er bai shi san (two hundred ten three) - sorry for not writing proper pinyin.
Don't you just write e. g. 一九九七年 for the year 1997 but read it as "year one thousand ninety-seven" instead of "year one nine nine seven"?
Actually you say it just as it's written; for your example: "Yī jiǔ jiǔ qī nián" rather than "Yī qiān jiǔ bǎi jiǔ shí qī nián" which would be written: 一千九百九十七年
And to answer ArchieCric, 二一三年 "Èr yī sān nián" and 二〇一三年 "Èr líng yī sān nián"
I've never seen zero shown this way before, is it actually more normal than using ling?
零 is the formal, "proper", way of writing it. But informally esp. when you're n a hurry "O" or "0" are used. https://en.m.wikibooks.org/wiki/Written_Chinese/Numbers
Chinese goes from largest unit to smallest for dates and addresses. So it's year, month, day and the country, state, city equivalent for Chinese addresses
2 + 0 + 1 + 3 + "year" + 6 + "month"? Are "year" and "month" classifiers here?
There is no sound for the second character. I based my correct answer on a previous one (when I left it off) where it was corrected
Yes, it's the same. But unless you got a "type what you hear" listening module or "translate from English" you shouldn't need to type "O"; just "June, 2013"
Shouldn't it accept my answer if I type 零 instead of 〇? It marks 零 as a mistake but it's basically the same thing (plus I don't know how to type 〇 rather than just copy&paste it from somewhere)
Though the translation was my first guess, I didn't hear the sound of the 〇, so didn't include it in my answer
2019年6月5日 is how to write 05Jun2019 in Chinese; I have heard that 2019年6月5号 is also correct, and that 2019年6月5天 would probably be understood as well. Also, if you prefer to use Chinese characters rather than so-called "Arabic" numerals, you may. In my answer, I substituted "5th June" for the "6th June" you asked for, just so it would be clear to readers which number goes where; "06Jun2019" would be written as 2019年6月6日, etc.
As I can remember, it accepts "2017 December 21st" in another question. But why it doesn't accept "2013 June"?
Isn't the character for two supposed to change for numbers greater than the hundreds?
What the hell with the ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ absolutely non Sino-"0" character? Have you been bingeing on that ❤❤❤❤ "dubious" channel China Uncensored?
Welcome to the 8th Century. Actually, 〇 was already used in written Chinese before the 8th Century, but gained much more popularity during and following the reign of Empress Wu (武則天 Wu3 Ze2 Tian1) during the Zhou Dynasty (16Oct690 - 22Feb705).
