這句是不是少一個主詞????

可以解釋這句的詞構嗎?

They were once well off,but are now badly off.

連接詞後面的主詞是哪一個字???

    well off 或well-off : 富裕的 (比較級是better-off)

    http://tw.dictionary.yahoo.com/dictionary?p=well+o...

    badly off : 境況不佳的, 處境糟糕的; 窮困的;

    http://tw.dictionary.yahoo.com/dictionary?p=badly+...

    They were once well off, but are now badly off.

    他們曾經生活闊綽, 現在卻窮困潦倒.

    but後面的句子共用同一主詞they, 以避免重複.

    I think it should be

    "They were once well to do, but are barely meeting their ends now."

    他們曾經很富有,但現在處境都不佳。

    主詞一樣

    所以but後面的they可以省略
