如何從這裡的each判斷...

The cross-party legislative constitutional reform committee met yesterday -

as lawmakers from across party lines continue to seek consensus on possible

reforms or amendments to the island's constitution.

The only issue both sides so far agree on is to lower the minimum voting age

to 18.

However, they agreed yesterday to hold 10 public hearings starting April 9-th

to solicit public opinion on constitutional reform.

The K-M-T and D-P-P lawmakers heading the constitutional reform committee

will each host two hearings.

上面這段新聞的最後一句

The K-M-T and D-P-P lawmakers heading the constitutional reform committee

will each host two hearings.

請問大師,

如何從這裡的each判斷這句的意思是

兩黨每次分別各自辦兩次聽證會?或一個聽證會?

或是兩黨一起辦聽證會?每次辦幾個?

    "each" here means "KMT" or "DPP" individually, its meaning is:

    KMT 和 DPP 個別舉辦2個聽證會

    Other examples:

    The agency's 30 districts will each host a meeting the first two weeks of July.

    With your approval, we will each host a meeting once a month.

    If this sentence is:

    ..... reform committee will host two hearings.

    Then we don't know whether the hearings will be hosted jointly or individually.

    Hence, "each" in that sentence can be replaced with "individually" as:

    .... reform committee will individually host two hearings.

    2015-03-28 13:40:31 補充:

    For "或一個聽證會?" It will be rewritten as:

    .... reform committee will each host one hearings.

    or

    .... reform committee will host one hearings each.

    2015-03-28 13:43:25 補充:

    For "或是兩黨一起辦聽證會?" It will be written as:

    .... reform committee will jointly host hearings.

    2015-03-28 13:44:42 補充:

    每次辦幾個?

    The sentence doesn't indicate such an information. It just says TWO hearings for each party, it doesn't say anything about how many each time ("每次辦幾個?")
