,错误;使用过去完成时态错误,过去完成时 表达了 had taken 发生在 began 以前: 书在开始翻以前就被翻译好了 ,很荒谬; and 后面并没有采用与 前面 that 平行的方式,而是重新起了一个分句,使得句式 awkward, weird&unclear 补充说明: OG12-48 的解释: Logical predication; Grammatical construction Pope’s translation of the Iliad , not the Iliad itself, took seven years to complete. Th e main point of the sentence is that Pope began this translation in 1713, and every other comment about it must be subordinated to that opening claim, in parallel relative clauses. A. work that … requires a verb; without it, the sentence is a fragment. B. Correct. Pope’s translation is described as a work , which is then described concisely in two dependent clauses. C. The pronoun it after pronounced is redundant, an ungrammatical reference to a work , which has already been referenced by the relative pronoun that . ungrammatical reference to a work , which has already been referenced by the relative pronoun that . D. The appositive phrase a work … incorrectly refers to the Iliad , not Pope’s translation. E.

(GWD-8-Q41) When drive-ins were at the height of their popularity in the late 1950s, some 4,000 existed in the United States, but today there are less than one-quarter that many. A.there are less than one-quarter that many B.there are fewer than one-quarter as many C.there are fewer than one-quarter of that amount D.the number is less than one-quarter the amount E.it is less than one-quarter of that amount 题目释义: when drive- ins were…, 4,000 existed in the United States, but today there are fewer than one-quarter as many. 考点: 比较结构,逻辑表达,句子结构 1. 4000 这个单独的数字不可能 existed in the United States ,且数字可以做代词,故 4000 指代了 4000 drive-ins ,后面要用复数形式的谓语动词。 2. amount 的用法: GMAT 里面 AMOUNT 的用法解释是: amount is for undifferentiated masses such as sand or water ,即 amount 用于修饰不可分割的物体,即修饰不可数名词,因为 4000 drive-ins 4000 个不同的 个体所以 that amount 不可以修饰 4000 。另外 amount less 搭配 3. 比较。词组: less/fewer than X percent of Y less fewer 的选用取决于 Y 是否可数,本题的比较对象是
