TOO ... TO : How to use and practice: English Grammar

TOO ... TO

6th class నుండి మొదలుకుని10th class, Intermediate and Degree వరకు అలాగే Competitive Exams లో చాలా సంద్భాలలో ప్రశ్నలు ఈ క్రింది విధంగా వస్తుంటాయి. వీటిని Write as directed లో భాగంగా ఇస్తారు.

 

  1. రెండు sentences ఇచ్చి “too…to” తో రాయమంటారు.


ఇక్కడ దాని గురించి క్షుణ్ణంగా పరిశీలిద్దాం.


The words “too…to” have a negative meaning. It means ‘more than is necessary or desirable’. We don't need to use any negative words in this sentence. But the structure itself reflects negative meanings.


 “too…to” అనేది negative meaning కలిగి ఉంటుంది.  “too…to” ని ఒక sentence లో ఉపయోగించడం వలన ‘ఆశించిన లేదా ఉండాల్సిన దానికంటే ఏక్కువగా‘ అనే అర్థం వస్తుంది.


Let’s understand with an example:


  • The box was too heavy to lift it. 

(ఆ box చాలా బరువుగా ఉంది. దానిని ఎత్తలేము. అనగా ఎత్తగల్గిన దాని కంటే కూడా ఎక్కువ బరువుగా ఉంది అని అర్థం. లేదా ఆ box ఎత్తలేనంత బరువుగా ఉంది.)


How to combine two sentences into one using 'too … to'?


  • Replace ‘very’ with ‘too’ and remove the end mark (full stop)

  • Remove and replace ‘subject and negative word’ with ‘to’

  • Combine two sentences into one using punctuation..

For instance:

  • I was very busy. I couldn’t talk to her. (Combine them into one using ‘too … to’)

  • Replace ‘very’ with ‘too’ and remove the end mark: I was too busy

  • Remove and replace ‘subject and negative world’ with ‘to’: to talk to her

  • Combine two sentences into one using punctuation: I was too busy to talk to her.


I was very busy. I couldn’t talk to her.


I was too busy to talk to her.
