across from倒裝句?

請問這題倒裝句,

Across the busy street ________ an old lady with her grandson by side.

這題答案是went,但另一個選項is going為何不行? an old lady後面的with

her grandson by side應該不能算是主詞吧? 因為不是用and,原句不是可以解

釋成未來式嗎? 如下:

An old lady is going across the busy street with her grandson by side.

還是我的想法是錯的?

請英文高手幫忙解答!

Update:

有問了一位學校老師,她說因為副詞倒裝不能用進行式,如

老師來了 : The teacher is coming (here). 如果倒裝就要寫成 : Here comes the teacher.

不能寫成Here is coming the teacher. 所以上題不能選進行式is going,

請問這個說法對嗎?

    羅莉大師已經說對了一半, 可以再想想看.

    2012-10-05 12:01:38 補充:

    版主的觀念不能說是錯, 但是有幾點要修正:

    1. 句型的結構:

    進行式可以倒裝, 但是寫法如下:

    An old lady is going across the busy street with her grandson by side.

    Going across the busy street is an old lady with her grandson by side.

    要把be動詞後面的分詞當成"形容詞"看待.

    2. 這樣的句型極少用於表達"未來", 而且, 表面上是進行式, 但是語意偏向是表達一種持續的狀態, 而非"動作". 所以, 題目的句子即使倒裝, 也很彆扭.

    如果換個動詞: sitting, 用"sitting across the street is a"到google搜尋, 可以發現不少例子.所以, 原題的[is going]並不是適當的答案, 但是原因是句法不對, 語意也欠順暢. 並不是您的老師所說的"副詞倒裝不能用進行式".

    因為這個句子應該是過去的事實,所以不能用is going ,是牽扯到時式

    的文法問題!

    若是您要is going 您可以如此做,比較會保險!

    An old lady is going across the busy street with her grandson

    by side tomorrow.

    嗯, Kevin大師的進行式寫法是正確的:

    Going across the busy street is an old lady with her grandson by side.

    我已移除回答表示尊重與認同, 多謝Kevin大師的指教.

    安安的老師很不錯喔。幫忙問一下,她根據哪裡來的規則?最好有文法書加頁數。拿不出來的話就是信口開河。
