    1.) 先說正常的敘述方式

    When recess bell rang, the teacher was assigning students into different groups. (When 從屬子句)

    可改寫成分詞片語

    When recess bell ringing, the teacher was assigning students into different groups.

    當下課鈴聲響時,老師正在進行學生分組

    2.) When recess bell (was ringing), the teacher was assigning students into different groups. (X)

    前後都是進行式,表示分組進行的同時,鈴聲也一直持續的響。假設鈴聲系統故障,就有可能,但非一般常態。

    這裡有個同樣的問題:

    John was taking the test when the bell was ringing.- Is this sentence correct and logical?

    When the recess bell rang ....在本句所提供給主句的是一個「時間點」(這鈴聲是通知老師和學生,大家得馬上休息了),而不是一段「過程」(通常會用while來帶出副詞子句,表示在連續進行),所以動詞應用[過去簡單式]rang,而非[過去進行式]was ringing。
