有无冠词,意思有别

请看题目:

Can you finish the book in a month or two?

a. Yes,it’s out of ________ question.

b. No,it’s out of ________ question.

A. the,the                B. ×,×                  C. the,×                D. ×,the

此题应选D。比较:

■out of question 没问题(=without question)

out of the question 根本不可能(=impossible)

仅差一个冠词,意思几乎相反。比较以下类似句:

■a. Three months after her marriage,she was with child. 婚后三个月她就怀孕了。

b. She came to see me with a child. 她带着一个 小孩来看我。

■a. Great changes have taken place here since 1978. 1978年以来,这里发生了巨大的变化。

b. Now plastics have taken the place of many materials. 现在塑料已代替了许多材料。

■a. Mr Smith is in charge of our class. 史密斯先 生管理我们班。

b. Our class is in the charge of Mr Smith. 我们 班由史密斯先生管理。

■a. The old woman is in possession of a large fortune. 这个老太婆拥有大宗财产。

b. A large fortune is in the possession of the old woman. 大宗财产掌握在这个老太婆手里。
