The reason often given for the low regard in which smell is held is that, in comparison with its importance among animals, the human sense if smell is feeble and undeveloped.

這句話的given是pp嗎?

in which的用法是因為後面的held嗎?

that後面的句子是在說明that嗎?

已更新項目:

TOMING88 謝謝大大的回答,但是given為什麼用PP?

PP不是要有BE動詞嗎?

我是不知道為什麼要用in which而不是in

    原文是:

    The reason often given for the low regard in which smell is held is that, in comparison with its importance among animals, the human sense OF smell is feeble and undeveloped.

    嗅覺之所以被輕忽,常給予理由是: 與其在動物間至關重要相比,人類的嗅覺遲鈍而且未充分成長。

    這是一個復雜的句子,一步步猜解構:

    1.) The reason often given for (the low regard in which smell is held) is that,

    括號內先不看,或用代號 X 替代

    The reason often given for X is that,... 常被引用說明 X 的理由是...

    = The reason (which is often given) for X is that... which is 可省略

    2.) the low regard in which smell is held

    英文說極為尊敬某人 hold sb. in high esteem,說輕蔑,看輕某人或某事 hold sb. or sth. in low regrad

    所以原句也可以寫成

    The reason that smell is held in low regard is that... 但沒有原句來的有深度

    a.) 這句話的given是pp嗎? ==> 是的

    b.) in which的用法是因為後面的held嗎? ==> 來自於hold in high regard 變化運用

    c.) that後面的句子是在說明that嗎? The reason (for whatever) is that ... ==> that 後面是the reason 的真正原因
