such that ?

請問1,2句中 such that 是指示代名詞嗎?

通常點用法?

1.the lessee has the option to purchase the asset at a price

that is expected to be sufficiently lower than the fair value

at the date the option becomes exercisable

such that, at the inception of the lease,

it is reasonably certain that the option

will be exercised;

2 the leased assets are of a specialised nature such that only the lessee can

use them without major modifications.

謝謝

Update:

3 If there is no reasonable certainty that the lessee will obtain ownership by the end of the lease term, the asset should be fully depreciated over the lease term or its useful life, whichever is shorter.

Whichever 是指示代名詞嗎?

可否用另外一字代替?

    請問1,2句中 such that 是指示代名詞嗎?

    通常點用法?

    To be exact, "such" functions as a "Demonstrative Adjective" (or determiner) (指示形容詞) in the two sentences.

    "such" can also be a demonstrative pronoun 指示代名詞; e.g. Such is their decision. (表明上述的人或事)

    "such that" ("that" in a conjunction connecting a dependent clause (從屬子句) is used in the modification of nouns. It is usually used to mean something like "of a type that" (如此的...以致).

    1. ...to purchase the asset at a price (*that is expected ...) such that (**, at the inception...,) it is reasonably certain...

    "such" modifies the noun "price" and it is joined to the complementary subordinate clause "it is resonably certain ..." by the conjunction "that".

    * = appositive clause modifying "price"

    **= adverbial phrase (can be placed at the begining or the end of the clause)

    2. Same as (1), "such that" modifies the noun "nature" to tell, by its introduced clause, the details of the specialised nature.

    Note: you can also put "such" in front of the noun it modifies, such as:

    The leased assets are of such a specialised nature that only the lessee can

    use them without major modifications.

    3. Whichever 是指示代名詞嗎?

    No, "whichever" is a relative pronoun (複合關係代名詞).

    whichever = no matter which = anyone which

    Correction:

    * = relative clause modifying "price" (not appositive)

    Beware of the common mistake:

    such that =/= so that

    請問1,2句中 such that 是指示代名詞嗎?

    通常點用法?

    1.the lessee has the option to purchase the asset at a price

    that is expected to be sufficiently lower than the fair value at the date the option becomes exercisable such that, at the inception of the lease,

    it is reasonably certain that the option will be exercised;= 承租人有權選擇以遠低於合理價於行使購買權生效日購買那些資產, 這樣是(上述就是)於租約制定/訂定時巳相當肯定此選購權將被行使。

    such 這個 pronoun = the option ( to purchase the asset) 這選購權

    2 the leased assets are of a specialised nature such that only the lessee can

    use them without major modifications.租用的資產有其特定原則的, 就是只有承租人在沒有大規模改動下方可使用

    such 是 pronoun 代替 specialised nature特定原則; that =就是

    such that 在這裡的 such 是代詞 pronoun

    such that (連用) 是成語用法 (常用於法律文件) = (是)這樣(以致/ 上述就是)

    e.g The situation is such that agreement is unlikely.

    The topic were such that they all had something to write about.

    Mother's answer was such that she didn't say yes and she didn't say no.

    His bad behaviour was such that he agreed (with) everyone.

    His courage is such that he does not know the meaing of fear.

    His anger was such that he lose control of himself.

    3 If there is no reasonable certainty that the lessee will obtain ownership by the end of the lease term, the asset should be fully depreciated over the lease term or its useful life, whichever is shorter.

    Whichever 是指示代名詞嗎?= 是 det. pronoun

    可否用另外一字代替? No. = any one of the options (being discussed) that = 任何提及中的選擇(無論是哪)一個

    "such" is a demonstrative pronoun eg;-They didn't know what happened on such occasions.

    (1)such(=that) is the option that will be exercised.

    (2)such assets(=that) the lessee only can....
