小编摘要:改错要多做练习积累经验才能有提高噢!

   Ancient man attempted to change the weather by using
  magic.While experience taught him this was impossible, __1__
  he tried to forecast weather conditions.Even earlier in __2__
  1000 B.C.there were weather seers in Babylon----and
  priests clever enough to denounce as frauds those predicted __3__
  the weather a year in the advance.Some forecasters used __4__
  methods that seemed to take no connection with the actual __5__
  factors controlled the weather.Chickens and other animals __6__
  were sacrificed and their intestines poked to find signs
  indicating rain and drought.Somewhat more scientific were __7__
  predictions based on vegetation:"Onion's skin very thin ,mild
  weather coming in.Onion's skin thick and tough, coming
  weather is cold and rough." Insects and animals were also __8__
  favorite weather clues: "Before the glowworm lights his __9__
  lamp,then the air is always damp ." "If spiders their cobwebs
  forsake,the weather will for certain break ." "If frogs remained
  in pools,the weather will be fine .If they were seen on rocks, __10__
  rain and cold were due." It's difficult to say whether this rhyme
  should be taken seriously : " Hark,I hear the asses bray .Me thinks
  we'll have some rain today ."

  答案及解析:
  1.While—When或After
  本句的this指代的是to change the weather by using magic.when/after 引导时间状语
  2.in—than
  earlier是early的比较级,其后应有than
  3.those之后加who
  who引导定语从句
  4.删除advance前的the
  in advance为习语
  5.take—have
  have connection with 为习语
  6.controlled—controlling或在controlled前加that/which
  controlling the weather 或that/which controlled the weather做定语修饰the actual factors
  7.and—or
  rain和draught只能是二者之一
  8.删除is
  与上文平衡,均为省略句
  9.before—when/if
  条件句
  10.will—would
  if 引导的是条件句用的是remained一般过去时
