    第一題的答案應該很明顯是b.

    這一句採用的是把表地方的介詞片語(In a honeybee hive)置於句首,

    且根據複數主詞(honeycombs)所以選擇are,形成倒裝句!

    第二題就真還沒看過這種文法規則!

    大意說的是克拉原來是指某種樹的種子的重量,

    但今日被用來(be used to)當作寶石的測量單位.

    這一句原本應該寫成

    A carat, which today is used to ....pure gold was originally.....

    但大家也注意到了

    這樣會因為形容詞子句太長,使得讀者在找尋主要句子有些困難,

    而產生閱讀的困擾,

    所以把原來應放在關代之後的形容詞子句移往句首,

    並省略關代及be動詞,

    問題來了!

    cd不可能,

    但到底要不要倒裝呢?

    既然第一題要倒裝,可能大頭是在倒裝句這個部分遇到困難,所以就選a吧!

    大頭要跟我說答案喔!

    第二題的文法知道用意,但真的沒有遇過!

    * In ____ several vertically aligned honeycombs with hexagonal wax cells stacked close toghther.

    a. a homeybee hive is

    b. a homeybee hive are

    c. a homeybee hive of

    d. a homeybee hive composed of

    → d

    應該是honeybee吧,這裡是要講蜂窩組成法,用除去法abc都不對,因此是 d

    * Today used to measure the weight of gemstones or the amount of gold per 24 parts of pure gold, ____ originally the weight of a seed of the carob tree.

    a. was a carat

    b. a carat was

    c. which was a carat

    d. that a carat was

    → b

    前面那一句是為修飾第二句之主詞,第二句為主句 (但第一句寫的有些怪…)
