解答翻譯

正解:(A)

(哈囉!我正在找一個這個月底前可以供應多達一萬張海報的印刷商。)

答案詳解

(A) as many as

As many as 通常後面會接「可數名詞的複數形式」,有「和...一樣多」、「盡可能地多...」、「多達...」的意思。像這裡的 as many as 10,000 posters 就是指「多達一萬張海報」。依序舉例:

I have as many shoes as you do.
(我和你有一樣多雙鞋。)

You can take as many cookies as you want because I still have plenty.
(你可以多拿一些餅乾,因為我還有很多。)

There were as many as 20,000 people at the concert.
(在演唱會現場有多達兩萬人。)

 

(B) as much as

As much as 和 as many as 意思差不多,一樣有「和...一樣多」、「盡可能地多...」、「多達...」的意思,但通常後面會接「不可數名詞」。依序舉例:

I drank as much water as you did, but I’m still thirsty.
(我喝的水和你一樣多,但我還是口渴。)

Do as much as you can, and leave the rest to God.
(盡你所能地做,然後剩下的就留給老天爺了。)

A vegetable seller from Taitung has donated as much as 10 million dollars in the past.
(一位來自台東的菜販在過去陸續捐贈多達一千萬元。)

 

(C) as long as

As long as 可以是字面上的意思「和...一樣長」,或者是「長達...」,也有可能是「只要」。依序舉例:

Can you make the red ribbons as long as the blue ones?
(你可以讓紅色緞帶和藍色的一樣長嗎?)

I guess the meeting today will last as long as three hours.
(我猜今天的會議會長達三小時。)

You can have the dog as long as you promise to take care of it.
(只要你保證會照顧這隻狗,你就可以養它。)

 

(D) as soon as

As soon as 有「盡可能地提早」、「一...(就...)」等意思。舉例:

We will get there as soon as we can.
(我們會盡快趕到。)

Give me a call as soon as you get to the train station.
(你一到火車站,就給我一通電話。)
