急!!!!How do you do? 的意思

題目為:

Sam: . Fred:Not bad. Thanks.

(a) How do you do? (b) What do you do? (c)How are your father?

(d) How is your grandpa?

本人選A,但是答案是D,因為 How do you do? 不是等於 How are you? 嗎?

請各位專家們幫我解答!!!!

    您好我住美國一段時間了 相信能回答您這題 (a) How do you do?How do you do的用法是”初次見面”向別人打招呼才會說Howdo you do喔而回答的方法也是How do you do. Ex. A: How do you do, my name it’s Darren.B: How do you do, my name’sam. (b) What do you do?這句主要是在問人的職業”你幹哪一行的” Ex. A: What do you do?B: Oh, I’m a doctor. (c)How are your father?這句應該是文法上的錯誤要不就改成How is your father.要不就How are your fathers.不過 我想應該每個人都只有一個爸爸吧…因此How is your father.應該會比較恰當= =

    (d) How is your grandpa?這句就是正常的句子了!順便補充 在外國很常遇到這種問候性的談話當你想表達”普普通通” 就說Not muchEx. A: How is your grandpa?B: Not much, thanks.

    PS 若尚有任何疑問 all you have to do is ask^^

    There's only one clear answer for sure. I don't see the point that everyone argued for so long.

    Such a waste of time.

    It doesn't really matter whether the given answers are flawed, and we should not question about those.

    And I wouldn't say from what perspective that I see in Taiwanese education. There's nothing you can really do about since you're not one of them.

    老登大正解!加油!

    A, C, and D are all acceptable and even correct answers. The problem is the question is not a very good question.

    2011-10-15 03:16:44 補充:

    Back in the old, OLD days, repeating the question back with ‘How do you do?’ is correct. But, such practice is now regarded by many as archaic, even ludicrous. It is no longer the universal standard greeting. So, A is an acceptable answer.

    2011-10-15 03:17:49 補充:

    D is correct because the question is a grammatically correct sentence.

    2011-10-15 03:21:06 補充:

    C is also acceptable because the question is not about testing grammar. It is testing appropriate answers to a daily conversation. Minor grammar errors in the question or the answer is insignificant and irrelevant.

    2011-10-15 13:03:38 補充:

    I don't disagree. In fact, I did say that (D) is the correct answer. I am just saying that, given the context, there are multiple acceptable answers. IMHO, the question itself is questionable and flawed.

    2011-10-15 15:07:38 補充:

    我並沒有不同意你說的. 我只是說 C 也是可接受的答案因為文法小錯在日常談話中是次要的. 那問題主要目第不是考文法˙ 那問題是考日常問候的對答˙ 再說˙ 文法正確的句子也可以寫成 "How are your fathers?"

    我主要目的是說那問題本身就不是很恰當˙ 這也不是我第一次看到台灣英文考題出得不恰當˙ 有的甚至還是錯的˙

    2011-10-16 01:08:48 補充:

    我都同意大家所說的˙ 我不認為我們是爭論˙ 討掄跟爭論是有差別˙ 爭論代表有歧見˙ 我們從頭到尾都沒有歧見過˙ 我們只是多加討論˙多跟對方解釋自己的想法˙

    我從頭到尾從沒說過老登的答案是錯的˙ 實際上我早就說 D是 correct˙ 但是我覺得其它也 acceptable 說 acceptable 就已經暗示那是有主觀性的判斷˙

    既然 Fantastic 認為我們繼續討論是浪費時間˙那有何必浪費時間發言? 一笑置之後就跳過不是更能支持你的想法嗎?

    How do you do? 的"意思" 的確=How are you?

    可是回答的時候就不一樣了

    如果有人跟你說 How do you do?

    你也要用How do you do? 問回去(文法規定)

    而How are you?的回答則彈性許多

    可以說

    I am fine, thanks. Or

    Not bad, thanks. Or

    So so, thanks. Or...

    Sam: .

    Fred:Not bad. Thanks.

    (A) How do you do ? 的回答就是 How do you do?

    所以 答案 (A) 是錯的

    (D) How is your grandpa: ......你阿公好嗎? .........正答

    Fred 回答: 還不錯 ,謝謝.

    2011-10-15 12:36:24 補充:

    "How do you do" is used when we see someone at the first time. So the answer will be "How do you do" as well.

    Fred's answer : "Not bad" is answering to a question.

    So the correct answer is (D) How is your grandpa?

    2011-10-15 13:36:24 補充:

    Yea. Maybe because the way the poster put the question.

    That's why I put the "dialogue" before explaining the answers.

    And that's much clearer.

    2011-10-15 13:51:21 補充:

    (C) How are your father ? .......Wrong answer !

    It should be : How is your father?

    2011-10-15 20:24:50 補充:

    Hey, T,

    不是要跟你辯啦!只是日常問候的對答也要合文法啊! 如果不合文法的也可以選,那就不是考試啦! 此題的題目是正確的,只是版主排的不好而已.

    選擇題就只有一個正確的答案啊! (C) 是不正確的,就是不正確. 當然不能把答案改掉再說它是對的,是吧!

    這個對話前面應該還要有其他對話吧...

    如果沒有 就是他最後一句 說THANKS 代表他在問候某人 所以回答時就有用THANKS
