是不是要用 making ?

a bicycle, the choice is surprising involved. 錯的部份==surprising , 為什麼 ?是不是要將 surprising 改成副詞 ?

3. Despite the trend for rural people to migrate to the city, it was not until 2007 that

錯的部份==those, 為什麼 ? 要改成 ?

4 While much attention has paid to the nation's stubbornly high umemployment rate,

elections results. 錯的部份== paid to, 為什麼 ? 要改成 ?

    1 There were more than 300,000 people liveing in Philadelphia by the end of the colorial period, made it the largest city in the colony. 錯的部份==made , 為什麼 ?

    是不是要用 making ?

    答:

    沒有錯,正確是用making。

    原來句子是There were more than 300,000 people liveing in Philadelphia by the end of the colorial period, which made it the largest city in the colony.

    which 引導出來的關係子句的先行詞,就是前面整句(There were more than 300,000 people liveing in Philadelphia by the end of the colorial period)這一件事。把which關係子句改為分詞片語就形成making it .....。

    所以用making 是正確的。

    2. Keen to join the trend, people have realized that when it comes to the purchase of a bicycle, the choice is surprising involved. 錯的部份==surprising , 為什麼 ?是不是要將 surprising 改成副詞 ?

    答:正確。把surprising改為surprisingly就對了。

    因為要修飾動詞片語is involved,必須用副詞來修飾。

    3. Despite the trend for rural people to migrate to the city, it was not until 2007 that the world population of city dwellers came to outnumber those of country dwellers.

    錯的部份==those, 為什麼 ? 要改成 ?

    答:those 必須改為that。因為它是來代替前面的population。

    所以本句可寫成:Despite the trend for rural people to migrate to the city, it was not until 2007 that the world population of city dwellers came to outnumber (the population) of country dwellers.

    因為前面已有population,所以前後做比較時,後面的population單數用that代替,複數時用those代替。這裡population 是單數,所以用that。

    4 While much attention has paid to the nation's stubbornly high umemployment rate, political scientists have found little correlation between that measure and midterm

    elections results. 錯的部份== paid to, 為什麼 ? 要改成 ?

    答:本句的原來結構是While we have paid much attention to the nation's .....

    將本句改變被動結構就變成While much attention has been paid to the ......

    所以,很清楚知道這裡少了been了。所以要寫成been paid to

    5 I had fallen from the start for her serious little oval face and those great big sad gray eyes of hers. 想請問這個句子中 fallen from 要如何解釋呢 ?

    答:不是fallen from。

    是fall for 迷戀

    from the start 是副詞片語,中譯從一開始的時候

    所以本句中譯是我從一開始就迷上她那莊嚴的小瓜子臉和那顯得悲傷的灰色大眼睛。
