    1.) 原句須使用 worth,而非worthwhile

    The problem of when to blow the safe open is worth thinking about.

    = It is worthwhile to think about when to blow the safe open.

    = It is worthwhile thinking about when to blow the safe open. (Longman dictionary 指出在 It is worthwhile 可接不定詞 或 或動名詞)

    (原句worthwhile的使用,網上雖有類似的例子。我目前尚未看到具公信力的說明,worthwhile後接動名詞,幾乎都是 It is worthwhile Ving... 的句型)

    "To be worth doing something" means that something is useful or important enough to do.

    There's nothing worth reading in this newspaper.

    2.) The problem of when to blow the safe open is worth thinking about.

    炸開保險箱的時機值得考量/思索/斟酌
