今天在张培基的散文中看到这样一句话:

No one could tell how strong the Guardian Gods were.

这是一篇说小草的力量最大的文章,这句话的意思是没有能说出金刚的力气有多大。

问题是:为什么有WERE?而不是HAVE或ARE,难道这个是虚拟语气吗?

恳请帮忙回复。

were是和strong一起搭配的,你不能说the Guardian Gods have strong,而只能用be和strong使用,因前面用的是could,故用were

分析句子要看词语的搭配关系:how strong 是形容词,与之搭配的应为 be 类动词,不能用 have;  主句谓语动词为过去时 could, 与之搭配的从句,其谓语动词自然为过去时 were; 当然均含有虚拟语气意味。
