A:Where will you hold the party?

B:We're not sure yet. We haven't decided the place.

a).on b).with c).at d).about

哪一個才正確,請詳細解說謝謝

Update:

我原本也選擇D,但解答是A.用 on

想知道為何是on,不過看了123與妞的答案,我大概知道為什麼了

    我一開始也以為是 about 關於

    但去查了字典

    關於decide 不及物的用法:

    decide

    vi. 不及物動詞決定[(+on/for/against)]It's difficult to decide between the two candidates.在這兩個候選人中作出選擇是困難的。As to where to go, they haven't decided yet.至於去哪裡, 他們還沒有決定。 所以答案應該是ON了

    版主之後遇到collocation搭配詞的問題 可以多找找字典喔!!

    decide on + 待決定的項目

    decide about + 某事方面

    本句的the place屬於前者.

    e.g. We will decide later on the place about holding the year-end party. 1

    about也可用concerning, in/with regard to, in respect of代替.

    我倒認為the place沒有錯, 要是我也會很本能的用the place. 這裡的the place是指the place of the party, 它指定的是那個party的place, 而不是隨便任一個place.

    至於decide on/about的選擇, 我與T意見相同, about雖也普遍使用, 但這是題目, 是考題, 還是以字典上的為主較為保險.

    我認為這問題本身有錯˙ 因為 place 前面的冠詞是 the

    假如是 the 就暗示已經有指定好的一個地點˙ 可是問題是問 party 會在哪個地點˙ 所以應該用 a place

    搜尋大部分英語辭典˙字典˙都有 decide on 這個片語的正式解釋˙ 卻很少有 decide about 由此推論 decide on 應該是比較悠久甚至比較正統的使用方法˙

    但是網上很多英文報章雜誌˙ decide about 這個片語還是很普遍˙很多人使用˙ 所以我認為 decide about 也是可以接受的˙ 我個人會選擇 decide on 也就是答案 A

    And yes, on second thought, "the place" should be fine.

    答案100%是 (D) about

    A: Where will you hold the party?

    你會在哪裡舉行派對?

    B: We're not sure yet. We haven't decided about the place.

    我們還不確定. 關於場地,我們還沒有決定.

    * decided about something 決定關於什麼事

    其他的都沒有那種用法!! 很奇怪

    The focus is clearly ON " on vs about".

    001 (123) hit the nail ON the head!

    I will choose (d) as my answer, here is why:

    (a) on

    it is used to choose after thinking about possible choice, for example:

    He decided on blue rather than green.

    I am having trouble deciding on a gift for them

    (b) with

    it is used when there is something used to determine other, for example:

    He decided to run for president with his family support.

    He decides to help these kids with all his money.

    (c) at

    this has no obvious rule for using "at", for example:

    She has decided at that time.

    (d) about

    it is used to make a choose about something, for example:

    He is having difficulty deciding about the offer.

    In a word, to decided what preposition to use needs lots of practice, knowing the general rule may not give you the idea to use it properly. Let me give you some more sentences:

    The court decides against the defendant.

    The court decided for the plaintiff.

    She said she will decide by January whether to run for office.

    I decided in favor of other candidates.

    We haven't decided on the place.

    decide on someone/something : to choose someone or something from a number of possible choices.
