This sentence pattern was presented in class the other day and I must have tired or daydreaming or something because I can't figure it out and it should be pretty straightforward--I'm only an intermediate student.

Here are some example sentences:

这次考试太难了, 拿我们班来说吧, 五个人报名,四个没考上。


Could someone help me understand the construction? Many thanks.

Thanks. That really helps. Like I said simple but for some reason I just wasn't getting it. I appreciate your help.
