    🔷 本題:兩個人(他們)係第三人稱複數、過去式,所以用 “were”。

    # was 係 is, am 的動詞過去式,were 是 are 的動詞過去式。

    # present:[adj. 形容詞] 釋義1. 出席的,在場的[F] 例. How many people were present at the meeting? (到會的有多少人?)

    a poet and novelist = one person

    a poet and a novelist = two persons

    A poet and a novelist "were" present at the meeting.
