advanced english 不懂用法~
.Zynga Nation, the virtual world Zynga CEO Mark Pincus invented in 2007 as a place where PC userscould gather on social networks and play casual games at their leisure, boasts more than 225 million active members a month.
不是用 boasting~ 不是省略主詞，動詞就要加上 ing 嗎??

要是把這長句子的中間子句拿掉˙ 就比較容易知道為什麼要用 boasts
Zynga Nation, 子句, boasts more than 225 million active members a month.或是
Zynga Nation boasts more than 225 million active members a month.
如此你可以看出 boasts 其實是 Zynga Nation 使用的簡單動詞˙
假如用 boasting 的話˙ 那句字的文法就不對了˙

From the virtual world...to as their leisure.
All these complext sentences (paraellel with noun clause)describe Zynga. Therefore, the verb should be "boasts" instead of the infinitive.
