    1. D

    1. A leveraged buyout occurs when an interested party refinances a

    company through substantial debt "issues, then paying off the debt" with

    operational revenues over the next several years.

    (B)issues, and then paying off the debt

    (D)issues and then pays off the debt

    因為子句中 pay跟的是an interested party, 跟refinance一樣

    2. D

    2. By early 1996, President XX had initiated several effective measures

    to end the 36 year XX Civil War. Among those measures were the equitable

    implememtation of law enforcement, "integrating ex-rebels into civil

    society, and to reduce" the size and influence of the army.

    (A) to integrate civil society with ex-rebels, and to reduce

    (B) the integration of ex-rebels into civil society to reduce

    (C) to integrate ex-rebels into civil society, and the reduction of

    (D) the integration of ex-rebels into civil society, and the reduction of

    從 were "the equitable implememtation of law enforcement" 看得出來後面不管講啥, 或是有多長, 都是名詞, 所以D最順

    3. D

    3. Because nearly one-fourth of Italian citizens under 65 are not active

    in the work force, some economists are concerned that this high "rate for

    underemployment has discredited Italy's claiming" the lowest unemployment

    rate in Western Eroupe.

    (A) rate for underemployment discredits the claim of Italy of

    (B) rate of underemployment discredits Italy's claim to

    (C) peak of the underemployment rate discredits Italy's claim to

    (D) underemployment rate has discredited Italy's claiming

    這個比較單純 , 失業率就是 unemployment rate

    rate of unemployment雖然文法上不算錯,但以ETS來看,沒人會這樣用

    4. D

    "Before Texas was a state, it became the northernmost province of Mexico,

    and had been ceded" to the US only after the Mexican-American War.

    (B) It was the northernmost province of Mexico that became Texas, and was ceded

    (C) Texas is what had been established as the northernmost province of Mexico, ceded

    (D) Texas, once the northernmost province of Mexico, was ceded

    說不上來其他選項哪裡有問題...但其他的就是廢話一堆...

    歐文大大,

    第三題的答案,可能B會好些。

    1. It is a general statement, simple tense is better used here.

    2. discredits Italy's claim 'to' the ...

    it is a simple usage. eg. ...(claim to fame).

    Q4.

    B. Correct but is inferior to choice (D).

    C. needs 'it was' in front of 'ceded to' to make the meaning clear. Besides, the first sentence is a statement of fact which is best represened using simple tense.

    D. Good for its brevity and clarity.
