    1. The two most systems of accounting in use today are the cash system and the ''accrual system.'' ''accrual system''是什麼意思?

    整句:目前使用的兩種主要會計系統為現金系統與"生息系統(例如銀行的利息)"

    自覺得很怪..希望有懂會計的可以補充

    2. The first building to be ''air conditioned'' were mainly factories. 整句是什麼意思? ''air conditioned'' 為什麼要用被動?

    整句為:第一棟有空調系統(冷卻系統)的建築物主要是工廠。

    air conditioned 是形容詞,指的是配備有冷氣(空調系統)來冷卻空氣

    air conditioning 是名詞...冷氣機(空調系統)

    3. Paris id famous for the many sidewalk cafes that ''line'' its boulevards. 為什麼不能用''align'', ''line''和''align''的區別?

    id=>is

    巴黎以路上有很多露天咖啡座___樹林排列...line指咖啡座延著樹林排列 align指把咖啡座延著樹排列...依前後文意...用"aligned"就行啦

    4. Mr. Wang decided that he was not ''suited'' to life in a small town,and so he returned to the capital. 為什麼不能用''suitable''?

    Basically, be suitable "for"...

    5.The board voted to raise prices in small ''increments''. ''increments''這裡指加薪?

    我感覺是漲價...小幅調漲...(中油都嘛大幅調漲小幅降價..sigh)

    6. Most, ''if'' not all, of this report was written by Mr. Wang. ''if not all''是什麼意思?整句是什麼意思?

    if not all..=>not all 部份否定...不是全部就是大部份嚕...這裡意同most..有"若非全部...表示一個條件..."這句有兩個條件..1個是全部都王先生寫的...一個是大部份都王先生寫的...這句是第二個條件

    整句:若非全部...則大部份的報告就是王先生親筆寫的。

    7. We were told that we could complete this assignment ''however'' we pleased. 為什麼要用''however'',不能用whatever?整句是什麼意思?

    "不管"我們如何求老師...我們都被告知都要完成這個作業

    此處同 no matter how

    8.When the company raised prices, new price ''tags'' had to be put on all merchandise.為是什麼不能用''labels''?

    價錢的那一張price tag(中文忘了怎說...就小小一張上面有標價的)

    Definition from Cambridge Dictionary On-line:

    A price tag is a piece of paper attached to "something for sale" that shows how much it costs, or the cost of something

    9. After he won the award, Mr Galves was grinning ''from ear to ear.''整句是什麼意思?

    在他得獎後...Galves先生開懷大笑...(笑到嘴巴兩邊都接到兩邊的耳朵了)

    巴黎以路上有很多露天咖啡座___樹林排列=>整句為: 巴黎以路上有很多沿著樹林排列的露天咖啡座聞名。

    第3題要用 line , 有"沿著...排列"的意思

    align 則是"把...排成一列", 所以 line 比較適合

    我猜第一題應該是權責制,和現金制。

    簡單講一個是現金基礎,另一個就是權責基礎。
