You can reduce the risks of these kinds of investments

money you will have to put aside each month and the

参考答案及解析:


    1.把saving改为savings
saving表示“节约的”,和其复数形式savings意义不同。savings的意思是“存款,储蓄”。

2.在small前面加上a
a small amount of 表示“少量的”,冠词不可缺。

3.把what改为which或者that
amount在此是先行词,后面是一个定语从句,这个从句显然应该由关系代词that或者which引导。

4.在hold前面加who
先行词people后面是一个定语从句,因此需要有引导词。

5.在which前面加上at
关系代词which在此引导的同样是一个定语从句,并且在此应该用“介词+关系代词”这个形式,因为前面的rate往往用于短语at a rate,此处的介词可以提前。

6.把facial改为face
票面价值应是:face value。

7.把Therefore改为However。
此处根据上下文来看,表达的是转折的含义,而不是因果关系。

8.把hard改为harder
这里存在一个隐含的比较,所以应该用hard的比较级形式。

9.删除more,或者把more改为much
riskier本身已经是比较形式了,再加上more是多余的。把more改为much,表示一种程度也可以。

10.把we改为you


补充:
第二题将amount改为amounts也是正确的
第四题把hold改为holding也是正确的
a small amount of 和small amounts of 用法的区别

a large(great,good)amount of +不可数名词,谓语动词一般用单数;但(large,great,good)amounts of + 不可数名词,作主语时,谓语动词要用复数。
A large amount of damage <has been>done by the earth quake.
Large amounts of money <were>spent on the bridge.
这就是为什么第二题也可以把amount改为amounts而第八题不用改amount的原因。
