common和normally的用法?

While fish have been kept by mankind for thousands of years, they were _____ in a pool or a pond.

a.common

b.possibility

c.normally

d.frequently

答案是c

但為什麼a選項不行呢?

common不是也有"常見"的意思嗎?

像是:

Of all mental illnesses in the world., depression is one of the most common one.

或是

Smith is a very common last name in England.

如果能詳細更好

謝謝!

已更新項目:

不好意思

看完回答還是有疑問

to人妻

形容動詞要用副詞

所以common不能形容were

但People were equal.

這也是對的壓

to 羽

他們在水池和池塘是常見的

感覺語意也合(還是我太不敏感)

也非常感謝給意見的各位!!謝謝!

    其實 common 放在這裡沒有文法錯誤喔!但是句意會不一樣,句子結構也會改變。

    1)如果用 normally:

    While fish have been kept by mankind for thousands of years, they were normally in a pool or a pond.

    雖然魚被人類飼養了幾千年,但他們通常都在池塘裡。(粗略翻譯請見諒)

    2)如果用 common:

    While fish have been kept by mankind for thousands of years, they were common in a pool or a pond.

    雖然魚被人類飼養了幾千年,但他們在池塘裡很常見。

    題目想要表達的意思應該是「雖然魚常被人類飼養(在魚缸裡),但他們比較常生長在(大自然的)池塘裡。」也就是有比較兩件事實的意思。

    normal 通常有比較的意味,normal 是「正常的」,有正常的就有「不正常的(abnormal)」。

    這樣的話,第二句的意思稍微有些奇怪,用 common 比較像是在陳述一件事實(魚在池塘很常見),而不是和前面的「魚被人類飼養了幾千年」有關聯。

    當然要用 common 比較也是可以的。那樣應該寫做:

    While fish have been kept by mankind for thousands of years, they were "more common" in a pool or a pond.

    雖然魚被人類飼養了幾千年,但他們在池塘裡比較常見(比較常在池塘裡見到。)。

    簡單的說,common 是比較「中立」的詞,所以要做比較的時候可以用 more, less 等等來輔助

    文法與句子結構的部分:

    normally 確實是副詞在修飾動詞 were,但是用 common 在文法上也沒有錯,只是變成形容詞在修飾代名詞 they ,會轉移句子的核心。直接看後面的子句:

    1)they were normally in a pool or a pond.

    2)they were common in a pool or a pond.

    如果要把兩個句子簡化,但維持句子的基礎結構:

    1)they were in a pool or a pond.

    2)they were common.

    看出差別了嗎?也就是說(1)的重點是「魚在池塘裡」而(2)的重點是「魚很常見」。

    Fish are even more common in the ocean, aren't they?

    Also, fish _were_ normally in ponds or pools? Not in lakes or rivers?

    There is nothign wrong to say:

    They were common in ponds or pools.

    Just like,

    While apples originated in US, they were common in Taiwan.

    1. 如果要形容動詞不能用形容詞,要用副詞

    空格前的were 是動詞,所以common 不行因為common 是形容詞,possibility 也不行因為是名詞,而且意思也不合。

    2. frequently 是副詞,就文法來看它有可能是正確答案,但frequently 意思偏向"次數頻繁",一直重複發生的意思,例如"常見問題"是frequently asked questions (FAQ)

    因此normally 是正解

    2012-07-21 23:22:04 補充:

    People were equal. 中equal 形容的對象是people, 很明顯的形容詞形容名詞,這裡沒有問題。

    板大你的問句意思若用common 就會像Just Wondering 大大所說的前後句意思不合了。謝謝Just Wondering 大大提醒,我也修正我說用common 文法不對,應該是意思不合。

    common是形容詞,副詞形式是commonly,本句的空格只能填副詞性修飾語。

    這題選(c)normally比較好是因為意思為:通常,正常的

    常見,他們在水池或池塘

    通常,他們在水池或池塘

    所以C是較好的解答

    而且common在這裡的文法不對喔!!!
