appear+reluctant to

請教個文法問題:

appear+reluctant to 這文法有問題嗎?自己查字典:appear 為動詞,reluctant屬於adj

但看到個句子為 s.+appear reluctant to do sth........

如此文法沒問題嗎? reluctant為adj. 那要修飾誰嗎? 不是應該接reluctantly嗎?還是說 reluctant 也是修飾s. ? 還是 appear 此動詞有特殊用法?或者appear+reluctant to do...為習慣用法呢?

Ex:

Saudis appear reluctant to pledge aid.

Scientists appear reluctant to admit that a serious blow has been ...

Some Democratic leaders in Congress are showing signs that they are reluctant to enter the debate over the President's Emergency Plan for ...

    appear可以當作seem的同義字,結構是 appear + (to be)補語。補語通常是名詞或形容詞性質的。所以接上relunctant是對的。如果成為副詞,句子缺了補語,句意就不完整了。

    Somebody is relunctant to do something.這句中的不定詞片語to do something是用來修飾前面的形容詞relunctant。屬副詞性質。

    例句:He appears (to be) rich. He appears to have been rich.

    前面的括號中的to be是可以省去的。

    He appeared a little upset.

    It appears unlikely that our team will win.這裡的副詞unlikely還是補語,後面的子句是delayed subject。
