    a是對應可數的proportion, 而much只是用以加強smaller

    more examples:

    This is a much smaller house.

    This is a much better idea.

    meant在此是intended, supposed的意思, 即"被認為"。

    watched即"看電視"的"看"(watch)的過去分詞(past participle)。

    全句意思是"普遍認為,有些電視節目是讓人今天看了,明天忘掉的。"

    such...that是英語句子結構之一,用以說明因果關係:such...說明因,that...說明果。

    e.g. He is such a fat boy that he can't get into a car.

    留意such後需緊接名詞或名詞片語,如果是形容詞,需用"so...that"之句子結構,如上例可改為He is so fat that he can't get into a car.

    閣下擲下一句則可改為Other songs remain popular for so long that they become classics.而意思不變。

    首先,make接名詞之後萬萬不可加to,如果接動詞,動詞需為原形動詞(infinitive)。

    e.g. It makes him smile.

    也可緊接名詞或形容詞,在此be一詞則是可有可無,但慣常會省去。

    e.g. It makes him (be) happy./ It makes him (be) the happiest man in the world.

    第一句後面顯示不清楚,不清楚你想問什麼

    a much smaller proportion是一個noun phrase, 可看成 a 形容詞 proportion.

    much 修飾small,加強small 的程度.

    meant 用意為, to be watched 讓人看

    such... that 是一個組合, 意為 "這麼... 以致". such 後跟 noun phrase ("a long time"). 另外, so... that組合意思都是 "這麼... 以致", 但so後跟 adjective

    make a rock musician a millionaire 組合是 make + noun1 + noun2.

    noun1 (a rock musician )是object, noun2 (a millionaire)是object complement, 中間無 to be. 例如, She sang me a song.
