    Smith wrote his first poem _____.

    (A)while he worked a porter in a saloon in New York.

    (B)while he was working as a porter in a saloon in New York.

    (C)while worked as a porter in a saloon in New York.

    (D)while he was worked as a porter in a saloon in New York.

    正解: (B) while he was working as a porter in a saloon in New York.

    其他選項:

    (A)while he worked a porter in a saloon in New York.

    as a porter才對, 缺了as, 所以錯誤.

    由於work為延續動詞, 可用簡單式代替進行式, 所以在這裡用worked或was working皆為正確.

    (C)while worked as a porter in a saloon in New York.

    while應接子句或分詞片語, 這裡是主動語意, 要用working, 不可用被動語意的worked, 故錯誤; 子句要有主詞, 這裡缺主詞he, 故錯誤.

    (D)while he was worked as a porter in a saloon in New York.

    這裡是主動語意, 用worked或was working皆可, 就是不可用被動語意的was worked, 故錯誤.

    when a person write a poem, it doesn't just take a second. Usually, it takes a while. It is better to a process to describe the time he uses to write. Therefore, a progression tense is the best way. In the answer, only (B) is a past progression tense.

    (A) is a "past tense"

    (C) is a "past tense"

    (D) is a "past passive tense"

    "it is better to USE a process ..." missed "use" in the sentence.
