1.   There has been a growing number of traffic recently. (x)

a (n)...number of+复数名词: a (n)...amount of+不可数名词。

2.   A big amount of money has been invested in the semiconductor industry.(x)
      A large amount of money has been invested in the semiconductor industry.(√)

a large或small amount / number为正确用法,不可用a big或little amount / number。

3.   The party was a huge success. All the people really amused themselves. (x)
      The party was a huge success. All the people n:ally enjoyed themselves. (√)

amuse oneself是指“做一些娱乐或消遣的事情”,如:How do you amuse yourself in your free time?(你闲暇时做何消遣?) enjoy oneself是指“玩得很开心”。

4.   I took my children to an amusing park last Sunday.(x)
      I took my children to an amusement park last Sunday. (√)

5.   It's an obtuse angle, not a sharp one.(x)

      Falling in love is one thing; getting married is another. (√)

the other是指两者的“另一”,如:I have two computers. One is a desktop; the other is a laptop.(我有两部计算机,一部是台式的,另一部是手提的。)another是指三者或以上的“另一”。one thing和another表“……是一回事: ……是另一回事”,为固定搭配。

8.   George traveled from a country to another by bike. (x)
      George traveled from one country to another by bike.(√)

from one N to another=from N to N,是正确用法,如:The tradition will be passed down from one generation to another.=The tradition will be passed down from generation to generation.(这种传统将会一代代地传下去。)

9.   I rang the doorbell, but nobody responded. (x)
      I rang the doorbell, but nobody answered.(√)

respond特指采取行动或措施来反应或以书写的方式来响应,如:Thousands of viewers responded to our questionnaire.(好几千名观众回答了我们的问卷。)“应门”的说法是answer (the door)。

10.  I wrote her a letter but she has not answered back. (x)
       I wrote her a letter but she has not answered (it). (√)
 

answer a letter是“回信”; call back是“回电话”:answer the phone是“接电话”。answer back=talk back是“顶嘴”的意思,如:I hate children who answer back.(我讨厌会顶嘴的孩子。)
