夜神月 asked in 社會與文化語言 · 1 decade ago


1.Printers such as Johann Gutenberg in Germany were utilizing movable type and handpress, until the 19th century, the problem of distance had only been "attacked" by the invention of faster and more effective means of transportation.

Attacked in the paragraph can be replaced as

A.Fought B. worsened C. approached D. solved


因為我想到"solve the problem"


to DiReTeAr:



[the problem (of distance)] is attacked by the invention...

所以attacked受詞是the problem 不是distance啊

to River你的答案比較接近

    【問題】答案是C為啥不能選D,因為我想到"solve the problem"


    1. approach (v) to make advances to especially in order to create a desired result. 處理使有所進步,尤其是創造一迫切期待的效果。

    He approached the question as a scientist.


    2. solve (v) 單純解決問題

    With the help of his friends, he finally solved the problem.

    approached 比率合乎語意 如果沒有 approached 自然可以選 solved

    approached 比較合乎語意 如果沒有 approached 自然可以選 solved

    Attack in this sentence means to “go to work on (a thing)” (著手, 開始)


    It does not indicating that the problem had been resolved. It only indicated that the problem was worked on, that we had put a lot of effort working on looking at the problem. (Maybe eventually we will solve the problem, but this is not stated in the sentence).

    If you use “solved”, it indicated this is no longer a problem, which is not what “attacked” meant.

    Approach = to begin work on (開始著手), which is similar to what the word “attack” is trying to portray.

    Oh, I didn't realize that BBJ has already provided comment on this, which is exactly what I stated. Next time, I should look at the comments first before I answer to avoid any duplication.

    為什麼呢? 因為並沒有完全解決問題, 完全解決才用solve

    approach "著手處理,開始對付", 跟

    Attack "開始著手處理", 都有事情開始處理,而尚未完成的意味.

    而 solve, eliminate, resolve 都有處理完全的意味

    solve是給後面的 invention, 因為invention solve the problem

    但是問題是問 給前面的 of distance而不是problem本身
