You:The fire engine had trouble getting to the street (      ) the houses were on fire.

Me:That’s why we have to widen the roads in that area.

あなた:消防車は家が燃えている通りに入っていくのに苦労しました。

私:だから、そのあたりの道路は広げなければなりませんね。

今回は関係詞(特に関係副詞)の問題です。

A how

B that

C where

D which

正解はC

今回は関係詞(特に関係副詞)の問題。
今回の最初の文章は、(1)The fire engine had trouble getting to the street. と(2) The houses were on fire in the street または (3)The houses were on fire there. を一つの文章にします。

(1)と(2)を関係代名詞でつなぐと、The fire engine had trouble getting to the street in which the houses were on fire.となり、(1)と(3)を関係副詞でつなぐと、 The fire engine had trouble getting to the street where the houses were on fire.となります。

 

だから正解はC.のwhere、 Dの選択肢では whichでなくin whichとすれば正解となります。
