    1. 建議要看!因為那是額外的官方題目練習。

    2. 建議在考前過3-4遍。

    新年快樂。

    1. 的判斷沒有錯。

    2.

    A選項就是因為無法還原才會是錯誤答案...。前方根本沒有be動詞要怎麼嘗試還原?切記千萬不要「將錯誤答案視為正確來檢討」,這是嚴重錯誤的檢討習慣。

    B 選項我跟Ron的意見分歧。我的理解是B選項一樣無法還原。因為前方並無be動詞。

    C的後方還原應該是they have been(從這邊開始接前面的be動詞) conservative in setting dividends。

    to在be動詞的前面,不會被還原回去。been後面還原的只會是前方相對應的be動詞後方的成分,不會包含前方的成分。

    E. the rate of people consuming fatty foods is about the same in France and the United States, the

    我的理解是A. 錯在rate vs. US 所以比較對象不一致C. their指代不清+at a comparable rate意思改變我比較有問題的選項在D,ED. 是因為比較對象是the rate of... in France vs. the rate of.. in US,所以這樣寫句意改變,變成the rate of.. in (France+US)嗎?E. 我看了Ron 的解釋說不可以用of people consuming,可是為什麼不能理解成people( who consumes fatty foods)?

    請問還有什麼其他的判斷點嗎??謝謝Dustin~~~

    D:對的。按照句意應該是兩個狀況(rate)的比較。但是今天用單數,會變成法國跟美國視為一個整體。與後面的is about the same矛盾(自己跟自己比?)。

    E:因為句意斷裂。這個概念稱作「句意斷裂」在過去兩年來已經有分享過許多資源,因此在此不再贅述。

    請參考以下連結。http://dustingmat.blogspot.com/2015/07/scog2016.htmlhttp://dustingmat.blogspot.com/2016/02/gmatsc.htmlhttp://dustingmat.blogspot.com/2015/03/dustingmat-sc1-vs.html

    因為rate的意思是「速率」,而「事件」或「動作」才會有速率,人不會有速率。寫成rate of people...會變成「人的速率」,consuming只成為people的修飾語,而跟rate無關,形成句意斷裂。

    1. 先提醒你一點,這裡正確答案中的as+子句不是在表類比,而是在表背景,意思是「隨著...」(請參考:http://wslk.io/bSlpq

    「隨著(as)大公司裁減(downsized)」當「The steel industry has changed radically over the last two decades」的背景遠因。

    2. B選項中的that子句「that once conducted(注意這裡是that子句裡的動詞) operations from mining at one end of the process to shipping at the other」跳過短的非限定修飾語「, such as...,」修飾主詞「large, integrated companies」,主要動詞是have greatly downsized(這才是完整句的主要動詞)。

    that子句裡有一個動詞conducted,外面有一個動詞have greatly downsized,所以是完整句。
