    One reason for the unexpected findings may be that using the Internet leaves less time for the deeper relationships with friends and family.

    首先, 我們要知道 leave 這字其中一個意思:to make something happen or remain as a result 使某人落到某種地步/使造成某種情況或結果 (Oxford Advanced Learner's Dict.)。通常含leave這一用法的句子有以下結構:[某一情況/事物] + 動詞leave + (某人) + (with) + [某一結果]。例如 Our conversation left me with the impression that she was unhappy with her husband, 就是說 ‘與她交談過後, 令我感覺她對丈夫不滿’, 套入上述的句子結構:[Our conversation] + left + me + with + [the impression that she was unhappy with her husband];our conversation是原因, the impression that....her husband是結果, 兩者中間便以動詞left連繫以表達其關係。

    你問題句子中的leaves正是這個意思:使用互聯網令我們減少跟家人朋友作深入溝通, [using the Internet] 原因 + leaves + [less time for the deeper relationships with friends and family] 結果。

    多舉一例子 Expenses for the medication and operation for his heart condition left him without any money, 支付心臟病藥物和手術的費用 +導致(left) +他 + 身無分文。

    Leaves 並沒有 ‘放下’ 或 ‘分配’ 的意思, 更完全不是主動或被動的原因 (不應單憑問題那句子的內容來猜測leaves是什麼解釋, 而應首先了解這字的眾多意義中那個是符合問題句內的用法, 從而得出其意思)。

    至於句子為何不用takes字, 是因為如果用takes, 整句的意思便變了(根本變成語意不通), 可能你看見less time便以為應該是takes less time, 因為你曾多次遇過takes less time這片語。Takes less time 是 ‘需要少些時間’ (如 it takes less time to go by bus than to walk), 沒有 ‘導致’、‘令到’ 的意思, 配上問題句會變得詞不達意, 不知說些什麼。
