few 的英文請教

    (1). Most people have heard of intelligence quotient (I.Q test) but few people know much about them.

    *此句的people 皆作人們解。

    ■ people 作" 人們" 解時,相當於 persons, 後接複數動詞,

    ex: A lot of people believe in God.

    (很多人相信上帝)

    作" 民族解時,前面可用冠詞 a,複數形式加 -s 。

    ex: The Chinese are an industrious people.

    (中華民族是一個勤勞的民族)

    The peoples of the world love peace.

    (全世界各嚴族都熱愛和平)

    ■ few people (很少人)

    few 要和複數名詞連用。

    few 一般帶有否定意思,與hardly any, not enough

    的意思比較接近;

    a few 的意思則比較肯定,與 some 的意思比較接近,試比較:

    Few people can speak a foreign language perfectly.

    (很少有人外語能說得十分道地)

    There are still a few apples left, so why not take two?

    (還剩幾個蘋果呢,何不拿兩個去?)

    (2). they believe that the difference comes from the birth order- _whether_ the children are the oldest , the middle, or the youngest child in their family.

    譯: 他們認為在一個家庭中小孩是否為老大、老二 或是最小的相異之處源自出生的順序。

    答案是" C"。

    ■ whether (引導名詞子句) 是否

    so, 這麼,那麼,如此,因此,所以之意,與句意不合

    such, 這樣的,此類的 之意,也與句意不合

    what if,假使…呢? ; 若是…又怎麼樣? 更與句意不合

    1.

    people跟men, women,we,they一樣

    都是複數名詞

    2.

    (C) whether

    從中文翻譯來看就知道了

    他們認為其中差異源自出生順序--孩子在家中[究竟][到底]是排行老大,居中或是最年幼.

    people 在此是複數。

    2.選(C) weather

    1.

    people是阿 有時候前面已經提到過的名詞後面就可以省略了

    像是:

    Most people have heard of intelligence quotient (I.Q test), but few know much about them.

    2.

    whether
