1.答案(C)，本句為倒裝句，原句應為Our soccer team would have enjoyed more success last season if Mr. Brown had been appointed as our coach instead of Mr. White.當if省略時，had搬到該子句主詞前面。
2.答案(D)，but for + NP 也是假設語氣的句型，表示「如果沒有」；本句時間是「上學期」，所以是「與過去事實相反」的假設語氣。
3.答案(C)，關鍵字but now襯托出過去與現在的對比，used to + 原V→過去的習慣。
4.答案(B)，特殊句型→ the + 形容詞比較級, the + 形容詞比級→ 越…越…；等待越久，越懂得賞識/珍惜。
