grammar 問題

Some property agents claim that buyers were verbally informed how much a few selected units were worth.

點解呢度係用selected 而唔係selective ??

係呢度噶selected or 呢個位置(before units )係咪作為形容詞??同唔係唔係作為 participal黎用..解被挑選??

    selected指已經被挑選~係adjective

    selected既form本身就係past participle

    其實past participle有好多用法

    其中一個可以做adjectives

    selected同selective意思唔同

    雖然2個都係adjectives

    但係呢度淨係指buyers揀左既units

    所以用selected~

    主要是句子意思的問題. selective 是指有選擇性的,而selected 是被挑選的,是用作形容詞.

    動詞的active voice(+ing) 及passive voice (+ed) 往往可以單獨作為形容詞,例如:

    the dying dog,the fallen leaves
