It’s+adj+for / of+sb+to do sth ■ It’s+adj.+for sb+to do sth 意思是 “ 对某人而言 做 …… 事是 …… 的 ” 。例如： It’s difficult for Debbie to choose the right hairstyle. 对黛比而言选择一个合适的发型挺困难 的。 在这个句子中， it 是形式主语，代替后面真正的主 语，即不定式短语 to choose the right hairstyle ， 因此，这个句子也可变为： To choose the right hairstyle is difficult for Debbie.
该句型里的形容词是说明后面不定式短语 的，里面的 sb 跟该形容词没有直接联系， for sb 表示 “ 对某人来说 ” 。常用于此 句型的形容词还有 important, difficult, dangerous, necessary, useful, possible 等。
■ It’s+adj.+of sb+to do sth 意思是 “ 某人做某事 是 …… 的 ” 。例如： It is foolish of me to leave my purse at home. 我把钱包留在家里真是太愚蠢了。 在这个句子中形容词跟 sb 有关，是用来修饰 sb 的。其中的 “adj.+of+sb” 实际上是 “sb+be+adj.” 之意，常用于此句型的形容词有 good, kind, nice, clever, wise, foolish 等。
