    答:這裡的by是指藉由某種方法,by是介系詞,

      所以後面的let要改成動名詞letting

    不過好像沒有startled這個字,應該是打錯了

    2008-02-02 02:06:51 補充:

    sorry!因本人一時不察,誤以為startled是錯字,

    其實它是startle的過去式,意為"使驚訝",

    在此致歉!

    1. ))這裡的by當作介係詞 藉由的意思!

    ex. He is working by bus.

    他都搭公車去工作

    2. ))by還有另個用法!

    He startled us by letting a hobo move in with him

    這裡的by有藉由的意思 by+Ving 意思是藉由什麼...

    他讓一個遊民跟在身邊讓我們很驚訝

    BY===>憑藉, 藉著

    He startled us

    他嚇我們一跳

    為什麼呢?

    He let a hobo move in with him

    因為它讓一個遊民跟在他身邊

    在這裡用by來連接這兩個句子

    說明他為什麼讓我們嚇一跳

    Source(s): 自己
  • He startled us by letting a hobo move in with him

    翻譯: 他讓一位流浪漢搬去和他一起住,這件事讓我我們嚇一跳.

    這裡的 by是 "靠著,憑藉著,用,使用" 的意思.

    He startled us.----他嚇我們一跳

    by letting a hobo move in with him--
