この英文はどのように訳せば良いのでしょう?

この英文はどのように訳せば良いのでしょうか? 特に”nature of ~”の解釈がよく解らないのですが。 What is the nature of their claim? and, What is the total amount of their claim? if they mentioned it to you. 初歩的な質問かもしれませんが、どなたかご教授下さい。

彼らがあなたにそんなことを訴えるとしたら、彼らの言い分の真意はどこにあるのでしょう、そして、彼らの狙いはなんなのでしょうかねえ… nature......真実、真意、俗な表現では「裏」 total amount......総計といった意味、得られるすべてのもの、俗な表現では「狙い、目論み」 their claim......彼らの言い分 mentionedと過去形になっているのは仮定の文章であるから

  • 英文解釈なのですが

    英文解釈の問題なのです。 What is an idea? It is not just a word, nor is it a string of words. Words are performing their highest function when they express ideas, but they do not constitute the ideas they express. This is clearly shown by the fact that different persons all using the same word may not have the same comprehension of the idea which that word express. but 以下のthey do not constitute 以下なのですが、訳はできるのですが、意味がいまいちはっきりとわかりません。いったいどういうことを述べているのでしょうか。英語力のあるかた、よろしくお願いいたします。

  • この英文を訳してください!

    Everyone knows what biology is because We have all studied itin high school. Literally,it means the study oflife. Butif you were asked What biotechnology is, What answer Would you give ? Biotechnology is taking the knowledge that we have from our study of biology and adapting it to our own needs and to those of the earth around us. It means not merely understanding the forces of life, but using those same forces to improve our own surroundings. Such a statement sounds very vague. More specifically, biotechnology is applying industrial know-how to biologicalfunctions in orderto achieve certain goals on a large scale. For example, we can use our knowledge to take vegetables and grow larger ones Which have more nutrition and better flavor.In other words, we can improve on nature. Another aspect of biotechnology is called fermentation engineering. Fermentation is the process used in making bread, wine, and various types of whiskey. Through biotechnology we can learn to control this process carefully, so that we can learn to expect the same results every time. There is also medical engineering, which uses an understanding of biological functions to create new medicines. An important new branch of biotechnology is called genetic engineering. By altering the structure ofthe DNA of a cell, we can control heredity itself. Theoretically, people could decide in advance What their children are going to look like.In other ways, it may be the solution to finding cures for cancer and for hereditary diseases such as hemophilia. Some people think this is good and others think it is tampering too much with nature. Certainly this knowledge must be used wisely and not foolishly. Perhaps you have heard the word 'clone.'It is a word which is often heard these days, and simply means a copy. One aspect of genetic engineering is called cloning and, theoretically at least,it means the ability to produce identical organisms in quantity. Perhaps it could be used to produce animals or vegetables for food, but some people are frightened ofthe idea. They think it could be used to produce unthinking and obedient armies of human robots. They also think it is playing with nature too much. What do you think of genetic engineering ? Does it frighten you or amuse you ? In what ways do you think it might be dangerous ? Do you think itis playing with nature too much ?

  • 文章解釈 A good person….

    以下の文章に関する質問です。 A good person is invincible, for they don't rush into contests in which they aren't the strongest. *If you want their property, take it—take also their staff, profession, and body. But you will never *compel what they set out for, nor *trap them in what they would avoid. For the only contest the good person enters is that of their own reasoned choice. How can such a person not be invincible? 1. If you want their property, take it—take also their staff, profession, and body. をどのように解釈すれば良いのかわからないです。 a) property は「特性」の意味ではなく、 「所有物」という理解で合っているか自信がないです。 b) take it—take also their staff, profession, and body これは、何を意味しているのかわからないです。 2. compel は「強制する」という意味で使われているのでしょうか? 3. trap them in what they would avoidは 「彼らが避けようとすることに、彼らを落とし入れるもないでしょう。」 という理解で合っているのか自信がないです。 解説宜しくお願いします。
