    『台灣曾一度被那個國家統治過?』

    "By what country was Taiwan once ruled?"

    【問題1】英文對不對?

    【回答1】

    1. 如果是問『那個國家』要把 what country改成 which country

    "By which country was Taiwan once ruled?"

    2. 如果是問『那些國家』要把 what country改成 what countries

    【問題2】 what 之前要不要加入"by" 呢?

    【回答1】要加 by

    【說明】

    [問句] By what country was Taiwan once ruled?

    [回答] Taiwan was once ruled by Japan.

    【文法說明】

    主動式肯定句:S + Vt + O

    => 被動式肯定句: S(原O) + be + p.p. (vt) + by + O (原S)

    => 被動式疑問句:By + W/H(O) + be動詞 + S + p.p.?

    如果把這句話換成肯定句,相信你就知道要不要有by了.

    例如: JAPAN ONCE RULED TAIWAN.(日本曾統治台灣),換成被動語態則成了

    TAIWAN WAS RULED BY JAPAN.台灣(過去)被日本統治.

    句中的BY要不要呢?如果不要,那如何表明被日本統治的關係呢?

    BY這個介係詞常用於表示經由什麼方法,靠..由...,或是以..依據,及在什麼旁邊.是一個很常用到的介係詞.

    在一般的被動語態也是經常被用到的介詞.

    希望這個簡單的說明,會對你有所幫助.
