    錯的是第四個,(your) 才對!

    這題是托福練習題,題目與答案在這裡(詳見第五題,答案在最下面,為D):

    http://www.csie.ntu.edu.tw/~b7506056/taisha/0003.%...

    D (your) 為錯誤的理由:

    因為括弧裡面的那個字必須與前面的 (man) 相符合。

    they are beyond (前面那個 man 的) reach. ,

    不就是

    they are beyond (his) reach. ?

    題外話:

    這題是參考美國作家詩人 Ralph Waldo Emerson 寫的句子:

    The stars awaken a certain reverence, because though always present, they are inaccessible...

    像吧?!

    (awaken) 改成 awake

    雖然他們的意思相近

    但在用法上的確有差別的

    在這裡照句意來說 , 2者是相同的用意

    但是用法卻是雲泥之別

    這句話說:

    儘管這類星星時常出現, 它們激起了人們崇敬敬畏之心,這是因為它們是你我難以觸及的

    awake 某物 為激起了....的意思

    awaken 同樣要表達 激起,引起 的意思, 必須用被動語法表達

    某事物 be awakened....

    其實你可以翻一翻字典,

    確認其他更詳盡的細節說明

    對你的英文能力一定有幫助的~~~~
