    SAT语法句子改错题规则有时和我们通常所学的语法书上的知识点有所出入,规则也不尽相同。再次,SAT语法句子改错题的考察中,不仅仅会考到你是否能判断这个句子正确与否,而且会考到这个句子是否有效和简洁。这就大大提升了题目的难度。比如说有些句子在TOEFL中是对的,但是在SAT语法里面就是错误的,因为它不够简洁有效。来看下面5个题:

  1. A patient accusing a doctor of malpractice will find it difficult to prove damage if there is a lack of some other doctor to testify about proper medical procedures.

  (A) if there is a lack of some other doctor to testify

  (B) unless there will be another doctor to testify

  (C) without another doctor's testimony

  (D) should there be no testimony from some other doctor

  (E) lacking another doctor to testify

  2. Samuel Sewall viewed marriage, as other seventeenth-century colonists, like a property arrangement rather than an emotional bond based on romantic love.

  (A) Samuel Sewall viewed marriage, as other seventeenth-century colonists, like a property arrangement rather than

  (B) As did other seventeenth-century colonists, Samuel Sewall viewed marriage to be a property

  arrangement rather than viewing it as

  (C) Samuel Sewall viewed marriage to be a property arrangement, like other seventeenth-century

  colonists, rather than viewing it as

  (D) Marriage to Samuel Sewall, like other seventeenth-century colonists, was viewed as a property arrangement rather than

  (E) Samuel Sewall, like other seventeenth-century colonists, viewed marriage as a property arrangement rather than

  3. Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Environmental Protection Agency is required either to approve individual state plans for controlling the discharge of wastes into underground water or that they enforce their own plan for states without adequate regulations.

  (A) that they enforce their

  (B) for enforcing their

  (C) they should enforce their

  (D) it should enforce its

  (E) to enforce its

  4. Last year, land values in most parts of the pinelands rose almost so fast. and in some parts even faster than what they did outside the pinelands.

  (A) so fast, and in some parts even faster than what they did

  (B) so fast, and in some parts even faster than, those

  (C) as fast, and in some parts even faster than, those

  (D) as fast as, and in some parts even faster than, those

  (E) as fast as, and in some parts even faster than what they did

  5. In the mid-1960's a newly installed radar warning system mistook the rising of the moon as a massive missile attack by the Soviets.

  (A) rising of the moon as a massive missile attack by the Soviets

  (B) rising of the moon for a massive Soviet missile attack

  (C) moon rising to a massive missile attack by the Soviets

  (D) moon as it was rising for a massive Soviet missile attack

  (E) rise of the moon as a massive Soviet missile attack

  Answer to Question 1

  Only C, the best choice, manages to convey the meaning of the sentence efficiently and idiomatically. Choices A and D are plagued by awkwardness and wordiness. Choice A also introduces the unidiomatic phrase lack of some other doctor. Choice B incorrectly uses a future-tense verb (will be) in the if clause; the if clause must use the present tense if it is preceded, as here, by a result clause that uses a future-tense verb (e.g., will find). Choice E introduces a dangling modifier: the lacking ... phrase cannot logically modify damage, the nearest noun.

  Answer to Question 2

  In E, the best choice, a modifying phrase begun by like immediately follows the name it modifies, Samuel Sewall. E also uses the idiomatic construction viewed marriage as.... Choice A inserts an adverbial modifier, as other... colonists, without the necessary did. It also uses the unidiomatic construction viewed marriage like .... Both B and C use the unidiomatic construction viewed marriage to be .... C incorrectly places the adjective phrase like other... colonists after the word arrangement, which it cannot logically modify. D offers a confusing and awkward passive construction marriage to. Samuel Sewall... was viewed....

  Answer to Question 3

  E, the best choice, is the only one that maintains grammatical parallelism by using an infinitive--to enforce—to complete the construction either to approve ... or.... All of the other choices offer syntactic structures that are not parallel to the infinitive phrase to approve. In addition, choices A, B, and C use plural pronouns (they and their) that have no grammatical referents.

  Answer to Question 4

  The properly completed sentence here must (1) use the proper form of the comparative conjunction, as fast as; (2) enclose the parenthetical statement and... even faster than in commas; and (3) preserve parallel structure, clarity of reference, and economy by using those to substitute for land values in the completed comparison. D, the best choice, does all these things correctly. A and B use so unidiomatically in place of as. A and E omit the comma needed after than and use the confusing and unparallel what they did instead of those. C omits the second as needed in the comparative conjunction as fast as.

  Answer to Question 5

  Choice B is best because it alone correctly handles the idiom to mistake x for y. Though choice D manages the correct preposition, for, the phrase the moon as it was rising for is less efficient and precise than the phrasing of choice B: since rising functions as a verb in D, the phrase for a massive... attack now seems to modify rising rather than mistook. Choice C incorrectly uses mistook... to, and choices A and E incorrectly use mistake ... as. Choice E also employs the nonidiomatic rise of the moon.

  很多情况下SAT语法句子改错题不是让你选择一个完全正确的答案,而是让你选择一个最佳答案。可能五个选项都是错误的,但是你需要从这五个选项里面选择一个错误相对来说最小的选项,它就是正确答案。
