OG 题目分析-2

Official Guide是每一个考GMAT的学生必须具备的书籍。里面的每一道题目最好做2遍以上(尤其是错题,一定要好好分析体会)。很多同学告诉我,OG的答案不够清楚。事实上,OG的有些讲解试图绕开一些需要补充的知识,例如什么是溯因推理,分词的用法等等,因此往往显得不够清晰。因此,我想我每天抽出一些时间,写一道OG的题目,帮助大家学习。

2. In her presentation, the head of the Better Business Bureau emphasized that companies
should think of the cost of conventions and other similar gatherings as not an expense, but as
an investment in networking that will pay dividends.
A. as not an expense, but as
B. as not expense but
C. not an expense, rather
D. not as an expense, but as
E. not in terms of expense, but

这又是一道平行对称(parallelism)的简单题(550分题)

除了昨天我们讲过的not only A but also B

英文中常用的还有:

(1)and , or , as well as
(2)not A, but B
not A, but rather B
A rather than B
A, not B
both A and B
between A and B

等平行对称结构

这题,读完题目,理解意思后,not + 名词短语(an expense) + but +介词短语(as an investment)不对称

因此,Quickly scan(快速扫描)剩下的选项,发现:

A, E有同样的错误,而C not A rather B是错误结构,应该是not A but rather B (上面的短语是固定结构,一点也不能改的!)

剩下就在B和D选择,B缺少an,另外否定的是“as an expense”而不是not an expense(not + 形容词/介词短语等,no + 名词

答案因此为:D
