    i'm afraid there is no "henpaoqian" in Chinese. henbaoqian(sorry) is the only pronunciation of “很抱歉”。。。(hěnbàoqiàn)

    hen bao qian is correct.

    hen pao qian is wrong.

    He should be. henbaoqian( 很抱歉) is correct.

    抱歉 = bào-qiàn = sorry
    炮钎 = pào-qiān = rock drill

    you said " very drilling" instead of "very sorry"
