A + a + B structure

A + a + B structure

This structure and the A + a1 + A2 is very similar, we in the translation of the time is to distinguish the third sentence what can not be connected together before a sentence, that is, last sentence and the former has no close relationship, of course, in some cases, the distinction between the two sentence structure is more complicated, but also more difficult to distinguish between.

Example 1

women's income of only five countries accounted for more than 80% of men's income, while the Chinese women's income is equivalent to 80.4% of men's income.

Now, there are only 5 countries where women's salaries make up 80% of men's, while the income of the Chinese women equals to 80.4% that of man's.

(This sentence contains 80% of the small sentence translated into the former clause, sentence behind again from the one, it is clear that the first two sentences and the third sentence is nothing logical relationship.)

Example 2

According to the report of the World Health Organization, 2020, the world's elderly will be over 1 billion, of which 700 million live in developing countries. Currently, there are about 580 million people over the age of 60 around the world.

According to a report of WHO, by 2020 it is estimated that the population of senior citizens will increase to 1 billion, including 700 million live in the less developed countries. There are 580 million people more than 60 years old all over the world at present .
