有關於 國一 every 的問題 拜託幫幫我!

我有個問題,everyboy是屬於單數,但學校出了一個問題,讓我

很困擾:

Everyboy has to do ________ homework

(A)their (B)his →我懷疑的就這兩項,其他一定不是

我不知道是(A)選項還是(B)選項,我剛開始推論時,everyboy是

單數,所以我想選(B),但前面又有個every,就不知道要選哪個

了,所以請大大幫幫我!!!

已更新項目:

你說的everybody是另一個意思,我說的everyboy是(每個男生)的意思,跟everybody是不太一樣的,不過還是要謝謝你!

    因為你是國一生

    所以我要說你應該要選B

    但是A反而在現實生活中常見

    在語言學上面這個也是很大的討論

    every 再造字的時候就是要加單數動詞

    理當所有格會相對成單數的his her 等等

    但是everybody又可以指代全體

    例如class也是一樣

    到底是班級中班上的同學還是指一個班級來說呢

    為了你的分數你要選A

    為了加強自己的英文實力請讀名詞的用法(可數不可數 generic 等等)

    摘要一個小小的英文解釋

    "The aspect of the grammar of English that has received the most attention in this regard is the long-standing Standard insistence on the generic masculine third person singular pronoun, as in Each person [Everybody] must bring his own calculator. The fact that only the third person singular pronouns reflect gender makes this issue stand out. At least four ways of avoiding the generic masculine pronoun have been proposed: (1) deliberately to substitute feminine singular pronouns for the masculine singular pronouns in such structures (Each person [Everybody] must bring her own calculator); (2) to insist that both masculine and feminine pronouns be used in each instance (Each person [Everybody] must bring his or her own calculator); (3) to add a second example everywhere, so that one of each pair may be masculine and one feminine, like Noah’s animals; or (4) to use the third person plural pronouns instead (Each student [Everybody] must bring their own calculator). This fourth approach appears to be the one most likely to succeed, both because it sticks with nouns and pronouns of common gender, so-called because they are gender-inclusive rather than gender-distinctive, and also because Common and Vulgar English have long used the plural pronouns in these positions.

    要是你是要寫 every boy(每一個男孩)的話

    你的every 和 boy中間是要有空格的唷

    並不可以自己就連成一字

    如要表every girl不可用 everygirl

    Everyboy has to do ________ homework

    (A)their (B)his →我懷疑的就這兩項,其他一定不是

    (B)選項絕對是正確的

    2008-05-02 20:42:03 補充:

    本題 everyboy 應是拼錯 everybody 才正確 而 everybody 是單數

    所以 要用所有格 his

    Everbody (=everyone) has his duty.

    我覺得是B啦(本人國3生)

     因為everyboy單數

     boy的所有格為his

    參考資料: 自己

    Everybody "has" to do "his" homework.

    因為"everybody"確實是單數

    您看它句子本身使用的動詞是"has"而不是"have"就可以知道

    這是第三人稱單數的用法

    所以答案是(B)
