PRACTICAL CHALLENGE! ~実践チャレンジ~

英語で下記の内容を表現してみよう。必ず声に出して練習しよう。

自分が主人公になったつもりで表現しましょう。

あなたは宝石強盗事件を捜査しています。捜査線上には大泥棒五右衛門が浮かんでいます。宝石店に残された指紋と彼の指紋が一致しているのです。でもここで大きな問題が。五右衛門はとっくの昔に死んでいるのです。同僚に相談してみましょう。

例えば「この事件には不可解なところがありますね。宝石店に残された指紋と一致するため、五右衛門がやったということは誰の目にも明らかなんですよ。でも問題は、彼がとっくの昔に死んでいるということなんです。どう思いますか?」。

[英語で表現してみよう]

使用表現例
事件 :  Case
指紋  : fingerprint

SIMPLE ANSWER

 
 
obvious は「誰にだって当然わかr」の「明らかな」。この状況で identical はピッタリな選択。「細部に至るまで、まるっきり同じ」。
 
 

ADVANCED ANSWER

 
clear leads は「明白な手がかり」。「手がかり」が lead なのは、事件解決に「導く」から。rather は「かなり」。
 
 
appear は「~のように見える・思える」。it is evident(明らかです)と同じ気軽さでこの「明らかに思える」を使えるように。commit は「犯罪などを犯す」。
