    1.There has not yet been any decision made as to which athletes will represent the country at the Olympics.

    as to 某事

    = concerning 某事

    = about 某事

    as to 在這裡是介係詞的用法,它和 concerning 都很常用,是 「關於某事」 的意思, 比 about 更正式。

    本句是說,關於 「哪些運動員代表國家參加奧運」 這件事,尚未有決定。

    2. Despite increased food intake, Jack continued to lose weight.

    這種考題,一般要注意 increased 還是 increasing 的分詞用法,考試常考。 記住過去分詞有被動的含意,現在分詞是主動。

    food intake 是 「食物攝取」, 所謂 「增加食物攝取」,是人去增加,所以要形容 「食物攝取」 時,英語要說 「為人所增加的食物攝取」,所以要用被動的 increased。

    中文對主動、被動的感覺,沒有像英文那麼強烈,所以經常搞不清楚。 讀英文文章時,看到分詞,一定要多用心,培養語感,習慣了就不會用錯。

    3. It was in 'Lions' that James Franklin made his stunning debut.

    這是把一句話故意用 「it is ..... that ...... 」 的句型。 就好像 「我在房間吃飯」,說成 「我是在房間吃飯的」 來強調不是在別處,而是在房間一樣。

    把英文句中要強調的部份提到前面,用 it is .... 就可以強調:

    James Franklin made his stunning debut in 'Lion'.

    --> It was in 'Lion' that James Franklin made his stunning debut.
