英文翻譯字詞用法問題

想請問下列英文造句錯的原因

1.據報導,他涉及這場發生在鄰近區域的縱火事件

It was reported that he was involved in the arson which happened in the neighboring area.

註:neighboring area 被扣分了,請問有問題嗎?一定要neighborhood?

2.政府應該制定更嚴格的法律來保護消費者的權利

Government should formulate stricter laws to protect customers' rights.

註:formulate 被扣分,請問制定法律可否用此動詞?

Update:

其實我覺得都可以....

    1.

    Let me explain the difference between "neighborhood" and "neighboring area":

    "neighborhood" is the area where you ARE IN, including the immediate surrounding area (like within a few block of where you are).

    "neighboring area" is OUTSIDE of the area where you are in. It means the area that is NEXT to your neighborhood (maybe several miles away from where you are).

    2.

    Law is NOT done by formulating, but by LEGISLATING.

    The use of English vocabulary is very precise, this is why, to learn a vocabulary, you cannot ONLY know its Chinese translation, but to understand it in its English interpretation. If you want to learn vocabulary well, you shall start using an English-English dictionary.

    Let me ask you this: what is the difference among these words:

    outing, tour, trip, travel, journey, excursion, expedition ...

    Roughly, they all can translate as "旅行", but what makes them different is the distance and time duration.

    For example:

    You cannot use:

    We have a journey of British museum.

    but

    We have a tour of British museum.

    >>其實我覺得都可以....

    奉勸版大學英文還是謙虛點。

    這裡的回答很多都深思熟慮,查證過。不是『覺得』。

    該扣分的是

    1. 句子的冗長:

    It is reported that he is involved ... which ...

    2. which的使用:

    ... in the arson in the neighborhood. (O)

    (O) the area which you are in

    (O) the area where you are

    (X) the area where you are in

    neighboring area也有人用,意思是鄰近地區

    neighboring的意思:1.鄰近附近 2.比鄰(next to的意思)

    neighborhood則可以指1.鄰居 2.鄰近地方 或指特定的地區

    至於formulate 可以
