你开着一辆车。在一个暴风雨的晚上。你经过一个车站。有三个人正在焦急的等公共汽车。一个是快要临死的老人,他需要马上去医院。一个是医生,他曾救过你的命,你做梦都想报答他。还有一个女人/男人,她/他是你做梦都想嫁/娶的人,也许错过就没有了。但你的车只能在坐下一个人,你会如何选择?

Suppose you drive in a rainstorm in a late night .  you came to a bus stop , out there were 3 person desperately waiting for bus . one of them a dying old man ,  any delay to hospital would mean death . another one was a doctor who saved you from death before ,  you have gratitude to him ever since and never forget repaying him . the last one being your dream lover,  and he/she maybe now or never depending on your decision at this time. However there was no place for more than one person in your car , which one would you choose to take ?


我不知道这是不是一个对你性格的测试, 因为每一个回答都有他自己的原因。老人快要死了,你首先应该先救他。你也想让那个医生上车,因为他救过你,这是个好机会报答他。还有就是你的梦中情人。错过了这个机会。你可能永远不能遇到一个让你这么心动的人了。在200个应征者中,只有一个人被雇佣了,他并没有解释他的理由,他只是说了以下的话“给医生车钥匙,让他带着老人去医院,而我则留下来陪我的梦中情人一起等公车!每个人我认识的人都认为以上的回答是最好的,但没有一个人(包括我在内)一开始都没想到。是否是因为我们从未想过要放弃我们手中已经拥有的优势(车钥匙)? 有时,如果我们能放弃一些我们的固执,狭隘,和一些优势的话,我们可能会得到更多。

I am not sure whether is was designed to test your personality . perhaps every answer is well based. As to the old man, he was lingering on the death line , you ought to put ethic at the top of your priority in this situation . At the same time you thought it a good chance to return a favor to the doctor to whom you owe a great deal . Then shivering there was your dream lover. you decide to marry no one else but him/her .Let go of the chance would mean life -long regret .  while you might be wrestling with a choice , there is one applicant outstood his 200 competitors in an interview with his answer, He gave no explanation on his reason but the following words : hand the key to the doctor so that he could drive the old man to hospital , I stay with my dream lover for the bus.   People I know acclaimed it as the best answer,  yet none of them (which include myself) has ever thought of it , Is it that we’d never been conscious of giving up the existing assets (the key to the car )we already have?   At times when we would like to retreat by giving up preconceptions , insularity , and  existing assets , we end up to advance a lot further .


最后面这一句我不知道怎么翻译才好。 总显得别扭 不地道 。 your suggestion is highly appreciated .

waiting for bus-> waiting for a bus
one of them a dying old man -> one was a dying old man, he needs to be sent to the hospital immediately.
any delay to hospital 听上去有点别扭。

FYI on ...






i am taking your valued comments  seriously , thanking you .

Suppose you are driving at a stormy night, when passing by a bus stop. There are three people waiting for a bus anxiously. Among them there’s a dying old man who can not wait but to be sent to hospital instantly, while other one a doctor who had saved you and who you wish you could paid back someday, the last a woman you were always dreaming to marry and there is no chance she going back if you miss her. Now which one would you like to drop in the case that there’s no more than one seat available in your car?

真的是低手啊,我是个工科学生,学着翻译才一个月,这是我第一次尝试翻超过两句的汉译英。以后一定要多指教我啊

才回头看一遍就发现有时态错误了
