Multiple choice questions

a. That's so b. That's why c. Because d. For
so表示前面是原因, 后面是结果
That's why 从句 那就是……原因, 前者是原因, 后者why后面是结果was caught in the traffic jam. That's why I was late.

a. another b. other c. else d. different
在语法上, 冠词(an/a)、形容词性物主代词(his/my/your)、名词所有格(my mother's)不能同时并存的, 一般要用只能用其中一个
another=an other 另外一个,强调的是剩下的还有好几个当中的一个, 强调的是有三个以上
other 其它的, 加单数就表示一个, his取代the的位置
语法的范围正在放宽松, his another 也对, 但不太好

修饰不定代词:anyone else, anything else
