SC知識點:(語意合理性)為什麼”one of Ns + 修飾語 “修飾的永遠是Ns(不能跳躍)?


先前的文章中,曾經提到了跳躍修飾」的判斷觀念釋疑。後來,有網友問到了一個問題:one of Ns + 限定修飾語 為什麼永遠修飾的是”Ns”而不可以跳躍修飾到前面的單數”one”?

其實這裡的解答很簡單:GMAT的SC要求的是「表達有效性」(effective expression)。

比如像以下兩個正確句子:

With a new park, stadium, and entertainment complex along the Delaware River, Trenton, New Jersey, is but one of a large number of communities that are looking to use their waterfronts to improve the quality of urban life and attract new businesses.

The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict how rising greenhouse gas concentrations could affect climate.

拿以上例句一來講:

With a new park, stadium, and entertainment complex along the Delaware River, Trenton, New Jersey, is but one of a large number of communities that are looking to use their waterfronts to improve the quality of urban life and attract new businesses.


若今天句意上,that子句裡面講的內容只是要修飾one(也就是Trenton這個社區自己),那何必帶出一大沱其他東西(a large number of communities)?

直接寫成Trenton, New Jersey, is looking to use their waterfronts….不就好了嗎。帶出a large number of communities卻又不修飾人家,就讓人家晾在那邊,就像請人家來劇組報到又不讓人家上場一樣,很浪費(表達不有效)捏。

同理,第二個例句:

The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict how rising greenhouse gas concentrations could affect climate.


若今天句意上,that子句只是要修飾one(the effect of ocean white caps on global warming本身),那何必帶出the many aspects of the ocean environment?直接寫成The effect of ocean white aps on global warming is not yet incorporated….不是表達更有效,更直接嗎?

因此,若是寫成one of Ns,則根據以上表達有效性的邏輯,後面的修飾語一定是修飾Ns。(不然沒必要帶出of Ns)
