    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.
