Questions

Chris, 請幫我解題,謝謝^^

問題一
英文習作P.34
(A)8. According to the weather report,____ over the next few years.
(A) the weather is unlikely to improve
(B) it is unlikely that the weather improve
(C) the weather unlikely improves
(D) the weather will unlikely improve

(B)可以選嗎?

回答
NO. (既是單選,就選最好的答案)
See the description of "likely" on Dec. 23, 2009.
(1) likely是代表一種期望的「預測性的可能」。後面可加不定詞片語(to V片)或that子句(that S' +V'),也可以用 very 修飾。

a. 人/事物 be (very) likely to V~
b. It is likely that S + will + V~
So does "unlikely."

問題二
P.41
(C)4.These people are worried_____.
(A) their future  (正確是about their future)
(B)what can they eat (正確是 about what they can eat)
(C)about how they are going to survive
(D)about that they don't have enough money (正確是刪去about)

(D)要怎麼改?

回答
1. worry (be worried) about N.
2. worry (be worried) (about) what-clause. (多半不加 about)
3. worry (be worried) that S + (may) + V

See the following examples:
The teacher worried that these problems might be too hard for her students.
老師擔心這些題目會對學生太難。

Chris,問題二
我又有一個問題
你寫回答的第二點
2.worry (be worried)what-clause
是不是要加個about?
變成worry (be worried)about what-clause
我是看到(B)你修改後的答案有加個about

難道about可加可不加?

Good question!
沒錯
一般worry 後接that子句一定會去about
其他wh-疑問詞開頭可以保留
不過根據Grammar In Use (Cambridge出的文法), worry後接子句, 他們還是習慣去調about.
e.g.
I don't care about you.
I don't care what you think of me.
