Unlike physical energy, which is finite and diminishes with age, emotional energyis unlimited and has nothing to do with genes or upbringing.

  英语六级译文:

  身体能量是有限的,而且会随着年龄的增长而减少,而精神的能量则是无限的,它与基因或成长经历无关。

  六级词汇讲解:

  本句的主干是emotional energy is unlimited and has nothing to do with genes or upbringing。unlike physical energy作整句的方式状语,其中还带有一个which引导的非限定性定语从句,修饰physicalenergy。

  finite意为“有限的”。如:

  We should treasure our finite fossil fuel reserves.我们应该珍惜有限的矿物燃料储备。

  finite的反义词为infinite(无限的)。如:

  It is difficult to grasp the concept of infinite space.掌握无限的空间概念是很难的。

  英语六级考点归纳:
