He walks as if he is drunk.
He walks as if he were drunk.
前一句表示“他已经醉了”, 后一句则表示“他没有醉”。

前一句表示“他已经醉了”。

两句都是表示“他走路好像醉了一样”,差别是前者有可能但不一定是真的醉了,而后者是知道他不可能是醉的(例如刚才根本没有喝过酒),只是看来像而已。

When a pencil is partly in a glass of water,it looks as if it ______.
A.breaks             B.has broken
C.were broken  D.had been broken


  毫无疑问,答C四平八稳。D只是时态不一样,也没问题。而B虽然仍然有人认为不可,但用非虚似语气表达非现实的情况,在英美主流报刊中并不少见。

不少见不代表对。还是择善固执好一点,别“从错如流”。

  是的,但如果学生们看见英美主流报刊都这么用,难免会依样画瓢。因此最好叫考生以“最合适”而不是单纯的“正确”为对象。这也许说明一个问题:出题者没有跟上时代,也就是没有“与时俱进”。
