similar to 和 like的差別

片語similar to和like可以互換, 但是這一題

(O) The Euro, like the Yen, is considered a very strong currency.

(X) The Euro, similar to the Yen, is considered a very strong currency.

請教原因為何?

原因有可能是解答錯誤嗎?

謝謝

    因為like可當介系詞用,like the Yen是介系詞片語,可當主句述部的副詞性修飾語。

    similar是形容詞,similar to the Yen是形容詞片語,只能放在主詞補語的位置,不能用來當修飾語。所以第二句錯誤。

    The Euro, similar to the Yen, is considered a very strong currency.

    = The Euro, which is similar to the Yen, is considered a very strong currency.

    以which is+形容詞片語所構成的形容詞子句是可以精簡成形容詞片語,繼續當名詞的修飾語。但句意不同於like the Yen(當述部的修飾語)。
