so...that 中的so 为副词，后跟形容词或副词。
such...that中的such 为形容词，后跟名词（名词前可有形容词修饰），当that前面有many, much, few, little等词修饰时，只能用so,不可以用such。

a.such; so b. so; so c. such; such d. so; such
解析：选b。此处 little 意为“少”，所以第一个空要用so修饰；第二个空后面为many修饰名词，故也用so。
3. then he cuts off the leather top of the shoe as if it were the finest steak.然后他把皮鞋上端的皮子切下来，就像是切下一块最好的牛排。
句中as if引导状语从句。as if从句中的内容有时有主观想像或夸大性的比喻，此时从句中常用虚拟语气。若从句中的动词与主句谓语动词同时发生，则从句谓语动词用过去时；若先于主句则用过去完成时，若后于主句，则用过去将来时。
he looks as if he were an artist.他看起来就像是一位艺术家。
