3. ____ is one of good properties of this metal.
A. Light in weight B. Having been light in weight
C. Be light in weight D. Being light in weight
【答案】D 主语应该是名词性质，因此排除A项，因为light 是形容词;也排除C 项，be light in weight 不能作为名词词性;而此句陈述的是客观真理，应该用一般现在时而不是完成时， 所以选D项。D项意为“质量轻 ”，in 表示“在某方面 ”，weight “质量，重量 ”;句意为“重量轻是这种金属的优良特征之一。”
