  At the reception were the chattering guests, the three-tiered cake, and the lively music that have become characteristic of many wedding celebrations.

  为什么不是characteristics of ?

  1)SAT语法结构

  主句:At the reception were the chattering guests, the three-tiered cake, and the lively music

  定语从句:that have become characteristic of many wedding celebrations. (从句中 关系代词指代三个并列的先行词 the chattering guests, the three-tiered cake, and the lively music)

  2)按照上述对这道SAT语法真题的分析,定语从句可以改写为——

  they have become characteristic of many wedding celebrations.

  3)根据句意,只有“喋喋不休闲聊的来宾、三层蛋糕和美妙的音乐”三项才能构成婚礼的所独有的特色,多数婚礼都是如此,缺一就不成其为一个整体了。也就是说三项相加构成了统一的一种特色,而不是各自显示出来的,因此只能用单数表示。

  4)对比下面用了 characteristics 的句子:

  What are the characteristics that distinguish the Chinese from the Japanese? 中国人区别于日本人的特征是什么?

  这里的特征指的是多方面的,包括文化背景、长相、风俗习惯等等,而每一方面又都构成了各自不同的特征,所以必须用复数表示。
