大家知道,英美人喜欢使用省略句,尤其是口语或非正式文体中更是如此。

请阅读下面这篇文章,其中引用的这段对话可谓是史上很神奇的一段省略句了:

As is known to all, in daily conversation people often use simple words and simple sentences, especially elliptical sentences(省略句). Here is an interesting conversation between Mr Green and his good friend Mr Smith, a fisherman. Do you know what they are talking about?

                                                 Mr Green: Going?

                                                 Mr Smith: Been.

                                                 Mr Green: Any?

                                                 Mr Smith: Some.

                                                 Mr Green: Big?

                                                 Mr Smith: Small.

读懂了吗?请做做下面的题目检查一下:
