Jawaban: D. Kenapa jawabannya D = Who? Ini merupakan salah satu fungsi dari kata sambung untuk menghubungkan sub
clause. Atau banyak juga yang mengatakan bahwa kalimat tersebut biasanya dihubungkan oleh kata sambung yang disebut
dengan subordinating conjunction. Dengan kata lain, lebih jelasnya bahwa kata penghubung ini berfungsi untuk
menghubungkan antara induk kalimat dengan anak kalimat.
Jawaban: A. Kenapa jawabannya A = Since? Ini juga masuk pada subordinating conjunction. Dalam soal diatas kita bisa
lihat bahwa Jack menanyakan mengenai berapa lama hubungan Daniel dengan pacarnya. Kemudian Daniel menjawab
bahwa dia sudah menjalin hubungan dengan pacarnya itu sejak dia masih duduk di bangku SMP.
Jawaban: C. Kenapa jawabannya C = And? Nah, untuk tipe soal diatas, bentuk conjunction atau kata sambung yang
digunakan adalah coordinating conjunction. Dalam hal ini, kita bisa coba lihat bahwa memang antara smart dan
beautiful kedudukannya sama seperti yang sebelumnya ditunjukan oleh pemilihan kata is, maka dengan demikian pilihan
paling cocok adalah and
Jawaban: D. Kenapa jawabannya D = But Also? Pilihan yang sangat cocok memang but also karena itu masuk pada jenis
coordinating conjunction. Hal yang sebaiknya bisa kita pahami dengan baik adalah bahwa ketika dalam sebuah kalimat
ada not only, maka pasti sudah menjadi kesepakatan bahwa hal itu harus diikuti dengan kata but also.
Jawaban: B. Kenapa jawabannya B = both of? Kemudian pilihan yang memang cocok untuk dipilih adalah both of. Itu
karena memang sama seperti not only dan but also, juga harus bisa dipahami bahwa ada rumus coordinating conjunction
juga yang populer dan banyak digunakan yakni both of.... and ....... Nah, jika kita paham akan rumus itu, maka ketika ada
pertanyaan yang berhubungan, maka jawabannya tidak akan salah.
Jawaban: C. Kenapa jawabannya C = As long as? Kata as long as ini memiliki makna tertentu yaitu asalkan atau selama.
Nah, maksud dari kalimat diatas adalah ketika Jak bertanya mengenai apa yang bisa dia lakukan agar dia (seseorang yang
tidak disebutkan) bisa memaafkannya. Kemudian, Daniel menjawab bahwa Jack pasti akan dimaafkan asalakan mau minta
maaf dan menjaga janji di kemudian hari.
Jawaban: D. Kenapa jawabannya D = However? however ini sebetulnya menjadi salah satu bentuk kata sambung
conjunction yang menyatakan keterangan. Dengan kata lain, conjunction seperti ini biasanya disebut juga dengan
conjuntive adverb. Ada banyak sekali jenis adverb yang bisa digunakan memang beberapa diantara yang lainnya adalah
morever, likewise, otherwise, next, after all, dan yang lainnya.
Jawaban: B. Kenapa jawabannya B = In fact? Nah, ini merupakan salah satu pilihan yang memang sangat cocok untuk
digunakan karena memang sesuai dengan apa yang seharusnya diisi pada kolom titik tersebut. Ini masih masuk juga pada
jenis conjunction yang memang menunjukan keterangan dari apa yang disebutkan atau diungkapkan dalam kalimat tersebut.
Jawaban: A. Kenapa jawabannya A = In order to? Nah, ini menjadi pilihan yang tepat juga karena memang arti dari in
order to itu adalah agar. Sebetulnya, selain itu, kita juga bisa mengungkapkan in order that, namun karena di dalam soal
diatas ada verb pertama setelah titik-titik, maka yang paling cocok untuk digunakan adalah in order to.
Jawaban: B. Kenapa jawabannya B = After? Jika melihat soal demikian, maka cara terbaik adalah dengan mengetahui
beberapa arti dalam pilihan ganda yang tersedia. Selain itu, sebaiknya memang kita bisa memahami dengan seksama juga
logika dari kalimat tersebut. Dari kalimat nomor dua itu, maka jawaban yang paling benar berdasarkan kalimat diatas adalah
