在描述比较意大利和德国那两个国家吸烟率的数据表时，很多人会写类似：“Italy increased in 2009”（意大利在2009年增加)或“Germany decreased in 2010”（德国在2010年减少)。那样写不对，不是那两个国家在增加或减少，而是那两个国家吸烟的人数！
学生应该写的是类似：“The number of people who smoked in Italy increased in 2009（2009年意大利的吸烟人数有所增加)”和“The number of smokers in Germany decreased in 2010(2010年德国的吸烟人数有所下降)”
Farming, fishing and foresting was the biggest USA labour force employment in 1930.
Technical increased a lot in USA after 1990.
Sales and office had a steady increase.
在以上那三句话，题目里的英语都没有被变成正常，语法正确的英语。我们先分析一下标题：USA Labour Force Employment。注意，那个USA会导致很多考生犯错误。在作文里USA前面需要一个“the”。
菲律宾- the Philippines；
马尔代夫- the Maldives；
中东- the Middle East；
太平洋一类的海洋- the Pacific Ocean；
红海一类的大海 - the Red Sea等地方都需要一个“the”。
在上面这个题目，正确表达Labour Force Employment的方式包括：
the percentage of people employed in / the percentage of people working in / the number of people employed in / the number of Americans working in。
①Farming, fishing and foresting 那三个词都可以做名词，也可以做动词或形容词。因此正确用来表达从事这类工作的人的表述包括:
people engaged in farming, fishing and forestry / those working in the farming, fishing and forestry industries / people who did farming, fishing or forestry for a living / farmers, fishermen and foresters
②Sales and office 这两个词通常是名词。
people who worked in sales and office jobs / office and sales workers / people engaged in office work or sales
③Industrial & Technical很明显都是形容词。它们在这个题目里的意思是: industrial jobs / industrial work & technical jobs /technical work。在作文里它们应该这样被使用：
people who did industrial/technical jobs / people engaged in industrial/technical work / workers in industrial/technical fields / industrial/technical workers
people who worked in ‘other services’ / those who worked in jobs in the category of ‘other services’ / workers engaged in ‘other services’
