参考答案及解析:

1 在set和for中间加上up
短语set up表示“设立”,这里用作过去分词,修饰前面的committees。

2 consisted改为 consisting
joint committee 是consist of 的逻辑主语,所以要用现在分词。

3 in改为on
与occasion搭配的介词应该为on。

4 rely和outside中间加上on
rely 后面要用介词on。

5 out去掉
make studies 表示“进行研究”,这里没有必要用out。

6 its 改为 their
这里代词指代的是复数名词investigations,所以也要用复数形式。

7 to 和public中间加上the
表示“大众,公众”时,前面要加定冠词。

8 nevertheless 改为thus ,therefore
作者前面说国会有向社会公开调查信息的权利,本句说调查是立法者向公众传达消息的工具,这两句话之间应该是因果关系,而不是转折关系。

9 interests改为interest
作者此处要表达的是“激起公众的兴趣:,应该用”interest。interests一般表示“利益”。

10 these改为those
用代词指代一群人,后面在加定语从句修饰时,代词一般要用those。
