b. that 可作關係代名詞,但其前不可有介詞,故 (A) 不可選。

c. what 可作複合關係代名詞,但使用時其前不可有 先行詞,故 (B) 不可選。

d. from which(= where)可引導形容詞子句,修飾 表地方的先行詞,置入後表密室逃脫是一個你必須 「從中」逃脫的上鎖的房間,文法及語意皆符合, 故選 (C)。

 理由

3. In 2012, San Francisco established the first permanent REG on American soil.

 理由 

空格後一句提到截至 2022 年七月,在美國各地 有將近兩千間由不同公司經營的密室逃脫,而本句 提及 the first permanent REG,可知應是2012 年,舊金山在美國國土上「建立」了首間永久的真 人密室逃脫,故 (D) 項應為正選。

4. The future outlook for the escape room industry seems positive, according to industry insiders.

 理由 

空格後一句提到,特定科技的發展讓密室逃脫變得 更精密且有趣,可知業內人士對密室逃脫未來的展 望應該是「樂觀的」,故選 (A)。

 理由
