" 鱼哭了, 水知道吗? "

This was a bonus question in a chinese exam paper.

Is there a correct answer to this? What is it really asking?

What would your answer be? :D

森林里无人。 一棵树倒了。 有声音吗?

Sure your teacher isn't a Zen Buddhist?

What a dumb question. It looks just plainly dumb to me, nothing philosophical

“吾得孔明,犹鱼之得水也。”

Liu Bei was 鱼 , Kongming was 水 , and LiuBei was a master in shedding (false) tears sometimes upon Kongming's advice.

魚哭了,水知道嗎

Good point, Roddy! 8) Yah, it seems that very few foreigners have this kind of logic. Below are some famous words from “The Dream of The Red Chamber”, and I hope they can be some answer to your question, at least, to some extent.

When falsehood stands for truth, truth likewise becomes false,

假作真时真亦假

Where naught be made to aught, aught changes into naught.

无为有处有还无

——《红楼梦》

鱼哭了,水知道吗?

李白 《月下独酌》

花间一壶酒,独酌无相亲。

举杯邀明月,对影成三人。

月既不解饮,影徒随我身。

暂伴月将影,行乐须及春。

我歌月徘徊,我舞影零乱。

醒时同交欢,醉后各分散。

永结无情游,相期邈云汉。

Thanks!
