    I have found "Wuthering Heights" the finest love story ___

    1imaginable 2 imagined

    答案是1

    我想問選項2 文法有錯嗎?

    文法正確。imagined在此是分詞,當形容詞用,與real是相對應的。

    請參見New Oxford American Dictionary 3rd edition p.868的說明及例句如下:

    (often as adj. Imagined) believe (something unreal or untrue) to exist or be so: they suffered from ill health, real or imagined, throught their lives.

    I have found Wuthering Heights the finest love story (which is) imagined.

    形容詞子句如果是用be動詞,常可與關係代名詞一起省略,只留下補語,讓句子精簡。 所以本句在受詞補語the finest love story後面,看到原修飾語精簡後留下的主詞補語imagined。

    2Few works are ___of notice at the exhibition

    1short 2 worthy

    =該展覽中,沒有什麼值得看的作品。

    to be worthy of notice = 值得注意

    所以應選2

    to be short of xxx = 屬缺xxx的狀況

    They were three short of a majority, so the vote wasn't passed.(少三票)

    Many of our clients are short of money.(缺錢)

    short of notice (欠缺通知)

    worthy of notice (值得注意)

    ans: worthy of notice

    oh! "short of notice" can also be translated as "來不急通知"

    來不急 ==>來不及
