GMAT - SC - 句子改错 - 4


1. Records of the first 736 British convicts deported to Australia reveal convictions for crimes against property in all cases and they ranged from highway robbery to forgery.

A. convictions for crimes against property in all cases and they ranged

B. convictions in all cases were crimes against property and ranging

C. the ranging of convictions for crimes against property in all cases

D. that all were convicted of crimes against property ranging

E. that all of them had convictions for crimes that were against property; the range was

这是一道考查complement语法的题目,因为句中一个单词reveal既可以加something也可以加that + clause,根据GMAT出题的风格,当动词之后文字较长时选择that + clause通常是更合理,这样我们就排除了A, B, C三个选项。而之后D, E选项单凭be convicted of something or convictions for something是不能作出判断的,关键在于range的主语应该是谁,这里显然是crimes。所以D选项是正确答案。如果选择E, the range就会指代不清。

2. The symptoms of the participants in a recent decongestant effectiveness study, such as a 'stuffy nose,' parallel that of the multitudes of Americans afflicted with the common cold each winter.

A. parallel that of the multitudes of Americans afflicted with

B. parallel the multitudes of Americans afflicted with

C. parallel those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted with

D. parallels those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from

E. parallels that of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from

这道题目如果你有很多单词都不认识的时候完全不会影响解答题目。首先是要判断subject-verb agreement,那么排除D, E选项,因为主语是symptoms。其次是是用those还是that,因为是parallel symptoms所以就会选择C选项。

3. A group of students who have begun to clean up Frederick Law Olmsted's Morningside Park in New York City believes that the park needs not to be redesigned but to be returned to its former condition.

A. believes that the park needs not to be redesigned but to be

B. believe that the park needs to not be redesigned but to be

C. believes that the park needs not to be redesigned but could be

D. believe that the park needs to be not redesigned but to be

E. believe that the park needs not to be redesigned but that it be

该句前半句其实是一个较为复杂的主语,简化后就是a group,那么谓语自然要使用单数,这样只有选项A, C有可能。而need to do的否定为need not to do。这样答案A就显而易见了。
