    against all odds 曾是80年代的一首西洋流行歌名.

    我用我的 OKWAP 英語霸內建的 《朗文當代高級辭典》 (這是一本全世界教授專家推薦的辭典) 找出例子, 供您參考:

    首先理解: 複數形的 odds 是名詞, 不同於當形容詞的 odd (主要解釋是奇特的, 異常的, 古怪的 = different from what is normal or expected )

    接著來看:

    圖片參考:http://tw.yimg.com/i/tw/blog/smiley/39.gif

    odds

    n [plural]

    1 PROBABILITY

    how likely it is that something will or will not happen, especially when this can be stated in numbers

    〔事物發生的〕可能性, 機會〔尤用於可用數字表示時〕

    例: If you are male, the odds are about 1 in 12 of being colour-blind. 如果你是男性, 患色盲的可能性在十二分之一左右。

    詞組:odds against

    例: The odds against you getting killed in a plane crash are around a million to one. 死於空難的可能性極小, 大約為百萬分之一。

    2 DIFFICULTIES

    例: Theresa has overcome enormous odds to get where she is today. 特麗莎克服了巨大的困難才取得今天這樣的成就。

    against all (the) odds

    = in spite of great difficulties 儘管困難重重

    例: Against all the odds, racing driver Lauda recovered from his terrible injuries. 儘管非常困難, 賽車手勞德從嚴重的受傷中康復過來。

    ...

    很顯然, 知道此 odds 是當困難解釋, against all (the) odds 就是指儘管困難重重.

    最佳解答的例句:

    The odds against you getting killed in a plane crash are around a million to one. 死於空難的可能性極小, 大約為百萬分之一。

    是不是寫錯了?

    我記得動名詞要加上主詞的話要用所有格吧

    所以"you getting killed"改成"your getting killed"

    似乎是這樣
