Dear Mr Yang

What is the difference between "subject to" and "subjected to"? Thanks in advance.

1. Subject to - adjective - 可能受影響的,易遭受的 . eg. " flights are subject to delay because of the fog " . " smokers are more subject to heart attacks than non smokers " There are other meanings.

2. Subjected to - verb , passive -使遭受 . eg " the boy is subjected to abuse from his classmates " . " The city is subjected to bombing "

Dear Mr Yeung,

I want to know "during "and "while" have what different. Thank you!

Kevin

 

Hardly any difference at all in their meaning . But the sentence construction may be different

eg . ' He studied law during the time he was at Oxford "
" He studied law while he was at Oxford ."

" During the vacation , he read a lot of books ."
" While on vacation , he read a lot ."

Dear Mr. Yang,

How're you? Could you please tell me why past tense should be used instead of present tense in the following sentenses?

* I'd sooner we didn't go out at all tonight.

* She'd rather you didn't come now. Can you come later?

Thank you very much !

Best regards,
LL

 

I guess the reason is : It refers to something that happened a little earlier in time .
