    這句話的答案是 (C) attention,我先將它放入句中,再加以解釋其結構:

    One bright spot (主詞) is (動詞) the growing attraction (主詞補語) that (此處省略掉關係代名詞which或that,後面是要引導出形容詞子句的)

    sweet potatoes (形容詞子句的主詞) are attracting (形容詞子句的動詞) from health-conscious consumers (介係詞片語),

    who (關係代名詞當主詞,引導另一個形容詞子句修飾先行詞consumers) praise (動詞) the vegetable for its large amounts of vitamins, proteins and fiber (受詞).

    答案怎麼選,就要看上面從growing attention以及它所引導的形容詞子句看起:

    the growing attention sweet potatoes are attracting from health-conscious consumers

    我們將它獨立成一句話後,會得到這個句子:

    Sweet potatoes are attracting growing attention from health-conscious consumers.

    attract attentin 本是英文中的片語,表示"吸引注意",加上growing之後,意思則為"吸引越來越多的目光/注意",也就是"越來越為人所注意"。

    這句話的意思是在說"地瓜越來越吸引的那些有健康意識(health-conscious)的消費者的目光"。

    concern 當名詞時是指"令人關心關切的事",似乎在這裡並不恰當,且這個字也沒有搭配 attract 的用法,故將之排除。

    而attract growing attention也是有處可循的:

    There can be little doubt that environmental issues will remain at the core of the Arctic Council. They are also likely to attract growing attention by the world at large, if only because the Arctic is increasingly being seen as an early warning area for other regions, in terms of both long-range transboundary pollution and climate change.

    C attetion

    我們平常會說concern about (transitive verb)、又或是raise __sb.__ concern(noun)

    要是transitive verb(不及物動詞)

    後頭是不用加prep.的

    但用作noun form的話、是需要加prep.的

    關係;利害關係[C][U][(+with/in)]

    擔心,掛念;關懷[U][C][(+about/for)]

    (from yahoo 字典)

    又倒attention可以單獨使用
