GMAT 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。

10. (难度700) Hurricanes at first begin traveling from east to west, because that direction is the way the prevailing winds in the tropics blow, but they then veer off toward higher latitudes, in many cases changing direction toward the east before dissipating over the colder, more northerly waters or over land.
A. Hurricanes at first begin traveling from east to west, because that direction is the way
the prevailing winds in the tropics blow, but
B. At first, hurricanes travel from east to west, because that is the direction of the
prevailing winds in the tropics, but
C. While hurricanes travel from east to west at first, the direction of the prevailing winds
blowing in the tropics, and
D. Because hurricanes at first travel from east to west, since it is the direction of the
prevailing winds in the tropics,
E. Hurricanes, beginning by traveling from east to west, because this is the direction of
the prevailing winds in the tropics,

首先读懂意思后,我个人没有从划线部分发现什么明显的问题,于是开始读B并拿其和A对比,一对比,问题就出来了
A: at first + begin -> redundant!

B没有发现问题,继续读C,分析下结构:
while连词引导状语从句,中间的插入语the direction of the prevailing winds用来解释east to west at first,后面应该跟主句,但一看,多了一个连词and,语法错误。

D也改变了原文合理意思,认为hurricanes at first travel from east to west是they veer off toward higher latitudes的原因

E. 和D类似,意思改变,且错误,另外Hurricanes是主语,而后面已经有了they这个主语了

因此答案是B.
