    (a) now that -- 現在(已)

    eg. Now that the examination is over, I can have more time for my leisure.

    現在(由於) examination 已完結, (因此) I can . . .

    若寫成 :

    Seeing that the examination is over, I can have more time for my leisure.

    則句子「不太適合」--因為 “examination is over"並不需要 察覺到!

    (b) seeing that -- 眼見/察覺到

    eg. i) Seeing that Bobby has enough, he takes away the dog’s food bowl.

      眼見/覺得 Bobby已經吃夠了, (所以) 他拿走the dog’s food bowl.

    若寫 ii) Now that Bobby has enough, he takes away the dog’s food bowl.

    意思會變為 :

      現在Bobby已經吃夠了, (所以) 他拿走the dog’s food bowl.

    Conclusion:-

    =========

    用Now that或 Seeing that在某一句子上, 意思會有差別;

    有些用兩者都可以-- like (b), 但有些卻應採用其中一款-- like (a)!

    _____________________________________________________

    (c) seeing as -- 視為

    eg. Seeing his car as his wife, he won’t lend it to anybody.

    他把車子視為太太, . . .

    “seeing as” 與 “seeing that” 意思完全不同!

      不要緊, 可能因為我也正在作出些微修改,也有按掣去提交,但發覺提
      交不到, 會是互相「碰頭」吧!(⊙‿⊙)
      其實你有即時觀看我的解, 已很好了;
      你很努力, 也很有責任感啊!!
