Home/A2@GMAT 解答/修辭:not only A but also B

修辭:not only A but also B

本月考到了not only A but also B; A/B方向要相同, 要不就是都講好處, 要不就是都講壞處, 注意此時若A/B為對比句意, 講一好一壞時, 就要用A but B 對比結構.

V1. 有道很噁心的題目,前面半句,but XXX also XXX, 前半句劃線,我看了半天兩個答案中選,一個是沒有not only,另一個是 XXX did not XXX only,太奇葩了 但是趕腳又是遞進,but不表示轉折啊,童鞋們可以再複習複習知識點。

V2. 還有2題 not only,but also,可是有一道not only,but also不太好 選因為選項裡面只有一個是這個搭配,有一個選項只有not only在裡面,沒 有接but also。

若實戰上五個選項都有not only, 直接看詞性平衡, 不需要管對比關係

140. (32197-!-item-!-188;#058&006684) By offering lower prices and a menu of personal communications options, such as caller identification and voice mail, the new telecommunications company has not only captured customers from other phone companies but also forced them to offer competitive prices.

(A) has not only captured customers from other phone companies but also forced them

(B) has not only captured customers from other phone companies, but it also forced them

(C) has not only captured customers from other phone companies but also forced these companies

(D) not only has captured customers from other phone companies but also these companies have been forced

(E) not only captured customers from other phone companies, but it also has forced them

KEY: C

但是若部分選項not only不見了, 先將有not only A but also B不平衡選項刪除, 在剩下選項看句意是否為同方向或對比

OV2-63 Many policy experts say that shifting a portion of health-benefit costs back to the workers helps to control the employer’s costs, but also helps to limit medical spending by making patients more careful consumers.

(A) helps to control the employer’s costs, but also helps

(B) helps the control of the employer’s costs, and also

(C) not only helps to control the employer’s costs, but also helps

(D) helps to control not only the employer’s costs, but

(E) not only helps to control the employer’s costs, and also helps

以上這題C/D/E都有not only先解, 刪除D/E不平衡或慣用語錯誤, B 的 helps and also to limit不平衡也刪除, 剩A/C發現兩者方向都是helps講好, 選C

GWD-8-Q20 Not only did the systematic clearing of forests in the United States create farmland (especially in the Northeast) and gave consumers relatively inexpensive houses and furniture, but it also caused erosion and very quickly deforested whole regions.

A. Not only did the systematic clearing of forests in the United States create farmland (especially in the Northeast) and gave consumers relatively inexpensive houses and furniture, but it also

B. Not only did the systematic clearing of forests in the United States create farmland (especially in the Northeast), which gave consumers relatively inexpensive houses and furniture, but also

C. The systematic clearing of forests in the United States, creating farmland (especially in the Northeast) and giving consumers relatively inexpensive houses and furniture, but also

D. The systematic clearing of forests in the United States created farmland (especially in the Northeast) and gave consumers relatively inexpensive houses and furniture, but it also

E. The systematic clearing of forests in the United States not only created farmland (especially in the Northeast), giving consumers relatively inexpensive houses and furniture, but it

這題A/B/E都有not only先解, 刪除不平衡的A/E, C選項是fragment sentence, 剩A/C, 因為create farmland是好處, cause erosion是壞處, 所以選D表對比關係
