(a)steal (b)stealing

為什麼不能選steal

She used to drink some _____ water.

(a)boiled (b)boiling

為什麼不能選boiling

saw應該是感官動詞也可以選原形動詞steal吧???

    文法與語意必須兼顧, 因為合文法的句子未必具有正確的語意, 這兩題考的是語意的了解.

    She saw her ______ the box at that moment.

    正解: stealing

    感官動詞後面雖可接VR或Ving, 但有at that moment的時點強調, 就必須用Ving.

    steal復原成不定詞to steal是準備偷, 只有上帝才會看得到的吧?

    She used to drink some _____ water.

    正解: boiled

    boiled water是開水(已冷卻), 要喝沒問題; boiling water是滾燙中的水, 她怎麼喝呢?

    1.看到的時候她動作正在進行所以用+ing的動詞

    2.他喝的是煮過的水 而不是正在煮的水 水在他喝之前已經煮過 所以用過去分辭(水是被煮的)

    應該是這樣吧
