英文文法 被動式? 動詞?

題目

Cells 1(reproduce) by the process 2(of) mitosis, which 3(mean) a single cell 4(divides) into two cells.

選錯

答案:(3) mean才對

但是我想是(1)錯

因為應該爲"被動式"啊

(基本上我覺得(1)(3)都錯)

可不可以有哪位聰明的大大

可以詳述為何

謝謝@^O^@

    The only incorrect answer is the third one.

    It should be "means".

    The analyses are grounded as follows:

    Firstly, "reproduce" here is arranged as an intransitive verb.

    Besides, "by..." equals "by means of" here.

    We can see the similar usage below:

    E.G. Certain bacteria reproduce by (means of) splitting into two more quickly as is imagined.

    Secondly, "which" here stands for the statement that cells reproduce by the process of mitosis. That is, it is a singular subject, hence a sigular verb required.

    意思是Cells reproduce by the process of mitosis.細胞複製是靠細胞分裂 = A single cell divides into two cells. 一個細胞分成兩個此處細胞 reproduce 與 divide 都要用主動式而不用被動式唯一有問題就是 which meanS 所以答案是 (3)如果看生物的書談到細胞複製與分裂都是以主動式問 " How Do cells Reporduce?" " How do cells divide?"

    1不算被動啦

    因為文意是指說Cell "以" mitosis來 reproduce

    希望我有幫到你
