請問what appears to be 用法

請問what appears to be 需要用what的原因何在?如果寫 they or it appears to be,有何詮釋上的不同呢?

以下是新聞其中一句:

We basically have found what appears to be the requirements, the nutrients, to support life whether past, present or future

感謝

    請問what appears to be 需要用what的原因何在?如果寫 they or it appears to be,有何詮釋上的不同呢?

    1.sentence structure不同: 省去關代用法(這說法也許值得商榷):

    what = the thing which

    如版主所說,用they或it如下

    We basically have found them which appear to be the requirements, the nutrients, to support life whether past, present or future.

    OR

    We basically have found it which appears to be the requirements, the nutrients, to support life whether past, present or future

    2. it和they屬明確標的,而what則無

    I like reading the book. -> I like reading it.

    I like working with Jack and Mike.

    -> I like working with them.

    What happens?

    What's going on?

    We basically have found it ,which appears to be the requirements, the nutrients, to support life whether past, present or future
