  2.a.因为前面已经连词though了,所以不再需要连词了。hard-working though he was=although he was hard-working。

  3.b.因为as引导让步状语从句,要求将从句的表语或状语等放到句首。而although, while表示让步时,都用正常语序;另外,though引导的让步状语从句,其表语或状语等可提前也可不提前。

  4. c.因为immediately, instantly, directly和the moment, the instant, the minute等都可以用作连词,引导时间状语从句,相当于as soon as。

  5.c.因为表示“正要做某事时,突然又发生另一件事”的句型是:was /were just about to do sth. when…did…或was /were just on the point of doing sth. when…did…


  7.c.因为no matter后一定要接疑问词或whether。

  8.c.引导状语从句时no matter how=however,其后接形容词或副词,只有c正确。




  12.b.因为keep the portrait (把照片放在…)后面一定是指所放的“地方”了,所以用where (在…的地方) 引导一个地点状语从句。


  14.a.只有先a,前后意义才通:even if即使、纵然;so that为了、以便;as if. 好象;ever since从(那时)到现在。

  15.d.因为the moment可作连词,与as soon as相当。

  16.d.until (直到…)与肯定句连用,引出的时间是主句谓语动词结束的时间。even though即使;in case以防万一;whenever每当、无论何时。

  17.c.因为now that =since“既然”。

  18.a.因为with pride (骄傲地) 是固定短语;where (在…的地方) 引导一个地点状语从句,

  19.d.由where引导一个地点状语从句,表示坐 (sat) 的地方;后面是带有连词的现在分词作时间状语,when waking=when he woke。

  20.c.因为it will be 时间段 before…是固定句式,意为“过…之后才…”。句意是:要过五年之后,我们才会再次见面。

  21.b.因为whatever = no matter what引导一个让步状语从句,并作difficulty的定语。句意是:你无论遇到什么困难,也决不要灰心丧气。





  26.c.因为while有“只要”之意,与as long as相当。又如:while there is life, there is hope. 只要有生命,就会有希望。/留得青山在,不怕没柴烧。
