急~英文同義詞的用法(adapt同adjust)

我想問以下的同義詞

應該點決定幾時候用咩?

adapt同adjust都有識應的意思

以下呢句應該用adapt定adjust呢?

1. if the trousers are too tight,take them back to the shop and ask them to___them.

2. he found it hard to ____ to living in a trcpical country.

3. the country found it hard to _____ to the new government

4. we need to ____ these cars so disable people can drive them

    1. adjust --- 註: 意思: 修改/調整

    2. adapt

    3. adapt

    4. adjust --- 註: 意思: 修理

    最簡單0黎講,以上幾題,大致係從緊接的詞組/詞語,就可以判斷用邊一個.

    "adjust"後緊接賓語(object),表示被調整的人或物;"adapt"後緊接"to",而''to''就講一個結果(適應d乜環境,etc).

    其實"adjust"一字單獨使用,很難可以表達"適應"呢個意思,需要補充內容.以你第1同埋第4句為例:

    (1) if the trousers are too tight,take them back to the shop and ask them to adjust them.

    (2) we need to adjust these cars so disable people can drive them

    第1句:''adjust''後緊接賓語''them'',只係講調整0既對象,無明顯講"適應"0既意思

    第2句:''adjust''後緊接賓語''these cars'',講左維修0既對象,無明顯講"適應"0既意思,所以需要補充"so disableD people can drive them",表達"整車"0既目的.全句意思:"我們需要把車修一修,好讓傷殘的人可以使用.''

    希望我講得清楚明白~
