    002: You should use the original sentence to show your point. I think it would make more sense. In this case, because there's "at this moment", the emphasis is on what the person wants at this given time, rather than the preference.

    版主您好:

    這不是文法的問題, 而是語意的差別.

    先請您看兩句中文:

    1. 他[喜歡/偏向/選擇]保持緘默.

    2. 他[寧可/寧願]保持緘默.

    表面上都是肯定句, 但是因為用字的不同, 用英文表達時卻有分別:

    1. He prefers to keep silent.

    2. He prefers not to say anything.

    He doesn't prefer to keep silent.

    他並不[喜歡/偏向/選擇]保持緘默.

    這中間的差異, 您看出來了嗎?

    001: Thanks for your comment, but I don't think the presence of the phrase would make the situation any different.
