Could you please kindly explain the sentence?
Simple survival needs like hunger, thirst, and sexual desire are relatively clear-cut, and we quickly learn what particular discomfort is attached to the denial of these basic needs.
You could probably work this out, jiang, but for a tricky noun cluster: 'survival needs' are things necessary for survival. Why not try guessing the rest? I'll help out if necessary.
The night in the desert was cold. We were all __________.
'trembling', 'shivering' and 'shuddering' can be put here. Is that right? - use 'shivering' here.
He __________ with anger when he heard that news.
Only 'shook' can be used here. Is that right? (or I suppose you could make it a bit more graphic and say 'He boiled over with anger...' or even 'He was livid when he heard that news'. But 'shook' is the obvious choice.)
To tell you the truth, I was so frightened that I was ________ like a leaf.
'trembling', 'shaking' and 'shivering' can be used. Is that right?
The first two are more often used to show fear (which is why 'shivering' works best in (1) - because that is about cold rather than fear).
