答案詳解

只要了解每一個選項的用法,再搭配前後文,就能選出正確答案囉!

(A) what if

What if 意思是「如果…該怎麼辦」,是從 What should we/I do if… 來的簡略說法,後面會接「主詞 + 動詞….」,而且通常放在句子開頭。例如:

A: Today’s weather forecast said a typhoon may hit Taiwan this weekend.
(今天的氣象預測說,這個週末有一個颱風可能會影響台灣。)

B: Sounds bad. What if our flight to Japan is delayed or canceled?
(聽起來不妙。如果我們去日本的班機被延遲或取消該怎麼辦?)

 

(B) chances are

Chances are 意思是「可能」,後面會接「名詞子句」(主詞 + 動詞…)。例如:

A: Why isn’t the bus moving?
(為什麼公車沒在動?)

B: Chances are there is a car accident ahead, which caused the traffic jam.
(可能前方有車禍造成塞車。)

 

(C) just in case

Just in case 意思是「以防萬一」、「以免」,也可以省略強調詞 just,只用 in case,後面會接「名詞子句」(主詞 + 動詞…)。例如:

Bring the business card of the hotel with you just in case you get lost and can’t find your way back.
(帶張飯店的名片在身上,以防你迷路然後找不到路回來。)

另外,just in case 也能直接擺在句尾,後面不加任何東西。例如:

I don’t think I will drink any water on the road, but I will bring some just in case.
(我不覺得我在路上會喝任何水,但我還是會帶一些以防萬一。)

 

(D) because

Because 是「因為」的意思。那記得句子中有 because 就不用出現 so 囉,它們兩個不太會同時出現。舉例:

I almost missed my flight because there were long lines both at the check-in counter and at security screening.
(因為在報到櫃台和安檢都有很多人在排隊,所以我差點錯過我的班機。)

 

重點單字

◎ make a reservation(動詞)預定
quad room(名詞)四人房
via(介係詞)透過
reconfirm(動詞)再確認
go wrong with(動詞)出問題
arrival  date(名詞)抵達日期
