    again和 anymore最大的差異就是

    anymore通常只出現在否定句

    至於again則沒有限制

    所以你提供的問題

    but he doesn't work there _______.

    因為此句為否定句

    所以答案應為 B) anymore

    也可寫成 any longer

    試比較:

    We won't see each other again.

    我們不會再見面。

    I'm not going to see you anymore.

    我不想在見到你。

    可見 anymore的功能在於"加強語氣"

    anything也是相同用法

    如:

    I didn't see anything.

    我沒看到任何東西。

    肯定具的話會用 something

    如:

    I saw something over there.

    我看到有東西在那兒。

    any開頭的字應該是出現再否定句霍一問句

    特此更正囉

    一般來說 any 是用於疑問句和否定句(國中英語文法), 因此有any 的複合字也是如此 , 例 : Do you have anymore information? I don't want to talk about it anymore. 它也符合 not any= no 的原則 , 所以 I don't want it anymore. 也可以説 I want it no more. (只是口語中常出現雙重否定 , 變成 I don't want it no more. 小心! 書寫時可不行如此!!)

    again 基本上就是 "再一次 ; 又一次" (也就是 one more time), 所以我們會說

    Please say it again! 或是 Oh, no! Not again! 還有 Why did you make the same mistake again?

    至於I don't want to see you again. 與 I don't want to see you anymore. 都對 , 只是 I don't want to see you anymore. 感覺上更強烈 , 有 " 我再也不要見到你 !"的意思!
