    This suggests increased educational chances for women in high education這個句子

    increased當動詞用嗎-- 應該不是, 首先如果 increased 是當主要動詞的話, 那麼主詞 this suggests 便大有問題, 第一, suggest 是不能當名詞用的;第二, 就算勉強當它是名詞好了, 複數形的名詞也應該和複數形的 these 合用而不是單數形的 this.

    所以這句話的主要動詞是 suggest, 主詞是代名詞的 this, 而 increased 是當形容詞用, 用來修飾 educational chances. 因為在文法上連續用好幾個形容詞來修飾一個名詞是可以接受的. 所以這句話是說 : 這個(指這句話的前文所提的) 為婦女在高等教育上提供更多的教育機會.

    可以改寫嗎

    它的原句是

    This suggests (which was) increased educational chances for women in high education嗎-- 你這樣的改法是根基把 suggest當名詞的前提下,所以是不能成立的. 而且主詞是複數, 動詞也應該是 were. 另就算真要改, 也不能用被動的語態的 which were increased... 而是 which increased 或是 which were increasing....

    你可以把This suggests increased educational chances for women in high education 改寫成 : This suggests that the educational chances for women in high education increase or are increasing.

    increase本身就有增加/增多的意思,可當成Vi或者Vt來使用

    比方說:

    The wheat production increased a great deal this year.

    今年的小麥產量大幅度增加。

    句中的increase便是當成Vi來使用

    但是在你所給定的句子中不太一樣

    是由which was所引導的形容詞子句來修飾this suggest

    且由於他是一個獨立的子句

    也同樣是具有S+V+O+(OC)的架構

    在文法上面是跟整句話的基本結構無關

    所以increase在此例中並不能當成"整句話"的動詞來使用的
