Question: Ask your friend to fetch something (拿 ...来) to eat.
1 些 some.
Hint 2 the possessive 的 is used
Answer 拿 些 吃 的 来 。 Listen
Alternatively: 拿 些 吃 的 东 西 来
ná xiē chī de dōngxi lái. 些
xiē some is a measure word, not
a number. When 些
xiē is used, no additional measure words
are needed. 些
xiē is placed after a verb and before a noun, as in 喝 些 酒
hē xiē jiǔ
drink some wine. 吃 的
chī de means things to eat. The noun 东 西
things, which is not expressed, is understood by the listener. See also the comment in question 2.
