  Lebrun Steel Facing up to Tough Times

  0  After 98 years of trading, the steel manufacturer Lebrun knows from experience as how

  00  difficult fluctuations in the economic cycle can be for suppliers such as themselves.

  34  Since many of the nation‘s largest production companies which are its customers,

  35  Lebrun is adversely affected by any change for the worse in the economy. Yet Lebrun

  36  has managed to keep on sales steady (in the region of approximately $2.5 billion)

  37  and has recorded only one annual loss during the difficulties of the past five

  38  years, but despite the effects of the ongoing industrial slowdown. James Griffith,

  39  president of Lebrun, now has the task of turning up survival into growth, and

  40  his strategy is already becoming clear to those industry observers. In February of

  41  this year, the company acquired Bronson pic, additionally a one-time competitor.

  42  This merger will greatly expand the size of both Lebrun’s labour force, and

  43  Griffith estimates it will boost its revenue by nearly 50%, while too increasing

  44  the number of plants and R&D centres in much a similar way. Griffith is

  45  optimistic that while the steel industry is about to pull out of recession, and he wants Lebrun to be ready for this.

  这篇文章是介绍一个生产商面临的困境及所采取的措施。

  34题,这个句子并不是定语从句,主谓宾都很齐全,主语companies,谓语are,宾语its customers.所以which是多余的

  35题,正确的

  36题,keep on doing继续做什么,接名词的话直接用keep,keep sales steady保持销售平稳,on多余。

  37题,正确的

  38题,but和despite不能同时使用,必须去掉一个。but后面要接完整的句子,这个后面不是句子,是名词性成分,所以保留despite,去掉but。

  39题,turn… into 变为,成为。固定词组。turning survival into growth变生存为增长。Up多余。

  40题,句子前后并没有指代的含义,代词those多余。

  41题,a one-time competitor是修饰前面的Bronson pic ,additionally是另外的,附加的意思,用在这里意思和用法都不通,所以去掉。

  42题,both表并列,而这个句子前后是没有并列的含义的,只说了扩展规模。所以both多余。

  43题,too是副词,在这里用法不对

  44题,in a similar way固定用法,much多余

  45题,while用来引导时间状语从句,而很明显这个句子并不是,只是由that引导的从句,句子成分很齐全。去掉while。
