grab & grasp 都是抓,寫文章要怎麼使用?

1. grab & grasp 都是抓,寫文章要怎麼使用?

(已經有查過知識了,但那都不是我要的...)

2. forecast & foresee 都是預測,寫文章要怎麼使用?

3. You should't take everything ____ I gave you for granted.

這邊是不是省略了that

4. He who is greedly for power isn't trustworthy.

為什麼要多who?

Update:

關於1&2 我還是不太懂....3&4謝謝你

    Grab有「掠奪、抓取」之意,grasp則指是「抓牢、抱緊、領會、理解」,所以,在強調佔領奪取時用grab,若僅是抓牢某件事或領會某個道理,則用grasp。

    Forecast是「預測」,通常套用在推測(但不是確定)未來的報告中,如weather forecast或financial forecast;foresee則是「預見、預知、未卜先知」之意,表示對未來的「已知」,例:The future is unforeseen,un-是不能 foreseen是 foresee的過去分詞,當形容詞。

    that是在這裡是關係代名詞,因為是動詞gave的受格,故可省略。

    who在此是關係代名詞,who is greedly for power是形容詞子句,形容貪戀權力的「他」,若無who,則整句會出現兩個動詞:is, isn't。

    如果你要說「奪取、佔領」,那就用grab。例:The thief grabbed the purse and ran away with it.(小偷搶了皮包就跑!)

    如果你要說「抓緊、握牢」或「心領神會」,那就用grasp。例:The little girl grasps her monther's arm. (小女孩緊抓著她母親的手臂),這句你若用grab,會變成(小女孩搶走她母親的手臂~~太血腥了吧!)

    grasp還可用在:I don't grasp your meaning. (我不太懂你的意思)在此當「理解、心領神會」。
