    【2】

    you are sure to succeed only if you try.

    才正確

    搞混了是嗎

    那就化繁為簡

    不管是it only或only if先拿掉在說吧

    從if可知

    可以分成兩個句字

    you are sure to succeed.【你當然會〈向〉成功〈之路〉】

    you try.【你試試看】【你嘗試一下】

    現在把only放進【兩句】句子

    you are sure to succeed only.【你當然會〈向〉成功〈之路〉─唯一途徑】

    you try only.【你〈只能〉試試看】

    這樣明白為何only是放在if前面了吧

    把if放進來連街【兩句】句子

    you are sure to succeed only if you try.

    你當然會〈向〉成功〈之路〉假如你嘗試的話。

    翻好一點的話就是

    只有試試看你才會成功

    我覺得hobo_tough lines owner答得比較好耶

    我的補充:

    only if 的句子也可以看成Subordinating Conjunction(從屬連接詞)的句子

    因為要用這個造句的話

    就必須要有一個獨立子句跟一個不完整子句(自己本身無法有意思)

    用only if 將兩者連接

    You are sure to succeed only if you try.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

       獨立子句     不完整子句

    only if you try 沒有意思的子句(不完整子句)

    1.You are sure to succeed if only you try.

    2.You are sure to succeed only if you try.

    我搞混了,哪個才正確阿??

    2 is correct !原因如下:

    1. if only要是...就好了(與事實相反,須和假設語氣用法搭配使

    用)

    e.g. If ony you were here tonight. 今晚你在就好了(事實

    上妳不在)

    所以說You are sure to succeed if only you try.是錯誤的(try不是假設語氣用法)

    2. ony if 只要....(放句首要做倒裝句型)

    e.g. Only if you try your best can you succeed.

    1.You are sure to succeed if only you try.

    文法語意皆不對

    倒數第2個例句是倒裝例句
