逻辑意思上的平行

我们在选项的时候特别要注意有的选项常常出现结构上的完美平行,但逻辑意义上却不平行。特别是些动词,我们来看一个例子:

  ◆ Sal applied himself in his new job, arriving early every day, skipping lunch regularly, AND leaving late every night.

 

在上面的句子,-ing分词短语arriving early every day, skipping lunch regularly, and leaving late every night相互平行。但在主句中applied himself in his new job,却不和后面的元素平行。有问题吗?上面的句子是正确的,主句中的谓语是applied,-ing分词短语则作为一个补充部分说明。而作为GMAT考试中,出题者有时为了结构的平行会故意将其改成:

  ◆ Wrong: Sal applied himself in his new job, arrived early every day, skipped lunch regularly, AND left late every night.

 

上面的错句平行的完美无缺!所以我们不能简单的要求所有的动词在形上全部平行,我们要更注重内涵,关注句子的内在,即句意,由句意来决定句子各部分。
