Each year almost three million people from all over the world make a special trip to this remote part of the United States just to see this incredible sculpture. Gutzom Borglum was one of America's leading sculptors. In 1924, he received a letter from the State Historian. And, he wrote to him and asked him to come to the Black Hills and see if there was any possibility of using some of the rock outcroppings in the Black Hills that would draw tourists to his state which he loved. Borglum was imbued with the idea of having the people that had been important in the creation of his country, the creators of America. State officials agreed and Borglum decided he would carve four American presidents.

每年,全世界几乎有300万游客专程前往美国这个偏远地区,只为一睹这一不同凡响的雕刻艺术。格曾姆·博格勒姆是美国的一位著名雕刻家。1924年,他收到一封州历史学家的信,请他去黑山考察一下,看看是否有可能利用黑山的一些地表岩石,把游客吸引到他热爱的州来。博格勒姆一心想着要为缔造美国的重要人物雕像。州官员表示同意,于是博格勒姆决定,他将雕刻4位美国总统像。

 
 => 简明语法


as, which 非限定性定语从句 (2)

典型例题

It rained hard yesterday, ____ prevented me from going to the park..
A. that B. which  C. as  D. it

  as 和which在引导非限制性定语从句时,这两个关系代词都指主句所表达的整个意思,且在定语从句中都可以作主语和宾语。但不同之处主要有两点:
 (1) as 引导的定语从句可置于句首,而which不可。
 (2) as 代表前面的整个主句并在从句中作主语时,从句中的谓语必须是系动词;若为行为动词,则从句中的关系代词只能用which.。
  在本题中,prevent由于是行为动词,所以正确选项应为B。
