(A) would accustom (B) were accustoming (C) should have been accustoming (D) had been accustomed

【答案與解析】

1.【答案】(A),關係代名詞的所有格,whose表示「這家公司的」主要業務,是製造與銷售馬桶。

2.【答案】(A),過去完成進行式,表達過去那一段時間內,持續一直發生的事情。Over the past two weeks=在過去的兩個禮拜中。「在過去兩個禮拜中一直困擾著房客的問題。」Landlord=房東;tenant=房客。

3.【答案】(D),「銀行本來習慣用美金交易,但由於顧客要求,後來也開始接受歐元。」

be accustomed to + V-ing --> 習慣。

「本來習慣用美金交易」是先發生的事情,所以用過去完成式;「開始接受歐元」是過去簡單式,表示後來才發生的。

due to client demand=由於顧客的要求。

but是對等連接詞,共用主詞the bank,連接兩個動詞片語:had been accustomed to~ 跟began accepting~。
