1) That evening, as we sat together watching the sunset, I thought about how lucky I was to be sharing this beautiful experience with my friend and began to dream about the next item on my list.


내답

해설


처음 나오는 subject의 verb phrase는 thought about이 되어야 한다. 왜냐면 뒤에 how라는 conjunction이 나오기 때문이다. 그리고 뒤에 and가 나오면서 동사가 하나 더 나온다. 주어가 하나이고 동사가 2개인 compound sentence 라 할 수 있다.




2)There are few people in the mountains.


정답


[There] are few [people] in the mountains.


해설

There는 여기서 filler subject로 쓰이는데 there가 장소로 쓰일 때는 people과 there 모두 주어라고 볼 수 있다.(아닐 수도 있음)


3)However, there was one time that I went skiing in Lake Tahoe when I didn't have a lot of fun.


내답


However, [there] was one time that I went skiing in Lake Tahoe when I didn't have a lot of fun.


정답


However,  there was one [time] that I went skiing in Lake Tahoe when I didn't have a lot of fun.


해설


There는 filler subject로 쓰여서 주어라고 착각하기 쉬운데 주어가 이렇게 동사 뒤에 나오는 경우도 있다. 동사와 주어가 이렇게 맞는 경우(was-->time)는 특별한 경우고 외워야 한다.


2번과 3번은 상당히 헷갈리니 잘 구분하기!
