一、It's important…类

It is necessary that I should return it right now. 我有必要马上把它还回去。

It is important that we should speah politely. 我们说话要有礼貌,这是很重要的。

It is not necessary that everyone be a scientist. 没有必要使每一个人都成为科学家。

It is a pity that she failed the driving examination. 她没通过驾驶考试真是遗憾。

It is his desire that a medical man should stay here. 他希望有一个医务人员留在这里。

 

三、It's desired…类

这种主语从句还常用在It is (was) desired (suggested, settled, proposed, requested, decided, etc. ) that...句型。如:

It is requested that a vote be taken. 建议付诸表决。

It is desired that this rule should be brought to the attention of the staff. 希望这条规则引起全体职员的注意。

【特别说明】

(1) 在现代英语中,有时也可不用虚拟语气而用陈述语气,但初学者宜慎用。

(2) 在It is amazing (strange, surprising, astonishing, a pity, a shame)以及 I am surprised (sorry) 和I regret等结构后的that 从句中有时也用should,表示说话人的惊异、懊悔、失望等情感,常含有“竟然”之意:

It's strange that he should be so rude. 他竟如此无礼,真是奇怪。

I'm surprised that he should have failed. 他竟然失败了,这使我很吃惊。

若不用虚拟语气也可以,则不带感情 色彩,比较:

It's a pity that he failed the exam. 他考试没及格,真是遗憾。

It's a pity that he should have failed the exam. 他考试竟没及格,真是遗憾。
