    Barry looked ______

    when he was told he had passed the test.

    這題如果是 be 動詞

    Barry was ____ ......

    則選 excited 沒有疑問

    但用的動詞是 look

    是否有選 exciting 的可能???

    版主的疑問顯然不在excited與exciting的用法

    而在於look這個動詞的特性.

    本句的looked是連綴動詞(Linking Verb)

    其用法與be動詞一樣都是後接主詞補語

    (be動詞本身就是連綴動詞)

    也就是說, 這個空格是要修飾Barry的

    看看後面的「當他獲知考試過關」就知道應選excited了.

    版主解本題就把looked視為與was的用法相同即可.

    exciting意思是「令人興奮的」, 通常用於修飾事物, 但在某些特殊情況也可以修飾人, 例如性感美女、啦拉隊、魔術師、特技演員等. 本題受限於後面那句的說明, 當然沒有填exciting的可能.

    連綴動詞包括:

    1)反映某種狀態的動詞

    be(is/am/are), appear, seem, become, get, grow,

    turn, prove, remain, prove, run, stay, lay, stand, go,....

    2) 與五官有關的動詞

    look, sound, smell, feel, taste

    Source(s): 母語不是英語的我們, 學英文就必須搞懂文法, 別聽信某些不負責任的論調而鬆懈.

    都沒有選exciting的可能

    excited 跟 exciting都是形容詞

    但-ed 通常都是拿來形容“人”

    -ing 都是拿來形容“物”

    When A excites B, it also can be said:

    A is exciting...

    and

    B is excited...

    So, in you case, Barry is always excited:

    Barry was excited...

    Barry looked excited...

    the messages (that Barry passed the test) are always exciting.

    exciting 都是拿來形容“事”是錯誤的

    He is an exciting person. = His personality is exciting. =

    她是個令人感到刺激的人

    沒有選 exciting 的可能

    例如

    He looked worried when he learned that he failed hsi final exam.
