    (這問題版大已經問過了,https://tw.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20...

    原答題者的解說並沒有錯)

    (先前的問題敘述,比較清楚)

    >A.It was time for Ted to pick up his son, so he left his office.

    是書裡"該是…的時候"的例句,我想如果要把它換成

    B.It was time that Ted ____ his son, so he left his office.

    的句型的話,空格內是該放 a.) picked up b.) had picked up

    >我的疑句是︰It is time that Ted picked up his son.

    這個句型不是算是"假設法"嗎?所以that子句裡的時態要用過去式。

    那如果主要子句裡的時態是過去式時,如B句時,空格裡應該填哪一個?

    1.) 首先,版大要先了解一件事情: 是不是假設語氣句型是句法決定,不是句意。

    It was time for Ted to pick up his son, so he left his office. ( 不是假設語氣句型)

    = It was time that Ted had to pick up his son, so he left his office.

    It was time that Ted picked up his son, so he left his office. (sounds weird)

    2.) IT'S (HIGH) TIME + PAST SUBJUNCTIVE

    注意只有在 It is time 的條件下,才是假設語氣句型,It was time 就不是假設語氣

    It's time (that) you went to bed. (該是睡覺的時間了,怎麼還在玩呢?)

    It was time that you went to bed. (那是你就寢的時間)

      It was time for Ted to pick up his son ....
      不定詞有尚未做的意思,所以上句裡的時序沒有問題:那時他該去接兒子(但尚未去)....
