I'm trying to do an exercise from a textbook; it's related to the grammar pattern
同样是……. Unfortunately, the textbook does not give any grammar explanations, and instead gives a single example and assumes it's possible for the student to infer the general pattern:
高级汉语口语, Advanced Spoken Chinese, Peking University Press, p. 85.
The exercise is to modify the given sentences into so that they use the 同样是 grammar pattern. However, I cannot infer the grammar pattern from the given example. From the single example they give, I guess the grammar pattern is something like:
同样是 [topic], [description of group 1], [description of group 2].
This feels illogical to me, since 同样 means "same", whereas the groups and what they're doing are different. Furthermore, I didn't find example sentences on Jukuu using this pattern, and I didn't find it on the Chinese Grammar Wiki. If I were to blindly attempt this problem, to achieve this grammar pattern, I would change it to:
But honestly, I'm just guessing, the grammar pattern seems unnecessary, and the second one feels wrong.
Question: What is the underlying grammar pattern behind 同样是 in the textbook 高级汉语口语?
