  other Parts of Northern Europe, archaeological evidence shows that Viking ships were lighter, slimmer, faster, and thus probably more seaworthy than the heavier vessels used by the English at that time.

  (C) With shipbuilding traditions in Viking-Age Scandinavia not fundamentally different from those

  句子结构:Although shipbuilding traditions in… were not … different from those in…, archaeological evidence shows that…

  考点:逻辑表达、习惯用语, Although引导让步状语从句。 逻辑表达,介词+分词的表达方式不及连词引导从句的表达更清晰有效。习惯用语-difference,difference in / different from

  (A) despite there being表达方式错误,应该用连词,despite是介词;tradition是抽象名词,用ones不恰当。

  (B) difference in… from …介词搭配错误。

  (C) with结构不如用连词接从句的表达方式更有效。

  (D) with … doing不如用连词接从句的表达方式更有效;tradition是抽象名词,用ones不恰当。

  (E) 正确,although引导让步状语从句,those指代traditions

  补充说明:one/ones(语法说明) One/ones 用以避免重复可数名词,在正式谈话或书面语中,不应使用。不能用以取代不可数名词,与抽象可数名词连用也很少见。例如: The Scottish legal system is not the same as the English system. (而不用 as the English one)"
