英文解釋一下

剛看到一個國中的提目

中文寫:他找不到他的皮夾

英文寫:He couldn't find his wallet.

為什麼要加could難道不能寫He not find his wallet.

幫幫忙一下

Update:

could't find 能不能換作

didn't find

    He not find his wallet.

    唸起來應該有種怪怪的感覺吧

    把他改成He couldn't find his wallet.是不是好一點呢?

    如果也改寫也應該是改寫成He can't find his wallet.才對

    至於could是can的過去式~他不是現在找不到皮夾

    而是他從一開始到現在都還找不到~所以用過去式

    因為not不能單用,一定要加在助動詞或be動詞後面

    例句1(沒動詞):He isn't a student.(is是be動詞)

    例句2(有動詞):He doesn't have a dog.(does是助動詞)

    您句中的find是動詞,所以要加上助動詞can

    "他找不到他的皮夾"表示他已經找過卻找不到,所以要用can的過去式could

    就變成您看到的He couldn't find his wallet.

    因為否定句一定要有助動詞,而這裡的助動詞就是can(could是can的過去式)。

    這句話是過去式。

  • 這是一個關於助動詞的問題

    就像是I PLAY BASKETBALL

    跟I DONT PLAY BASKETBALL是一樣的

    前面要加一個助動詞像是CAN COULD WILL DO DONT DOES....之類的
