Number 17

JAWABAN

Jawaban untuk soal di atas adalah “was looking for.”

Soal ini meminta untuk melengkapi kalimat rumpang nomor 17 dengan bentuk kata kerja yang tepat atau dengan pilihan kata penghubung yang diberikan.

Kalimatnya adalah “While the burglar 17. ______ (look for) them,Paul 18. ______ (try) to free himself” yang artinya “Sementara pencuri 17. ______ (mencari) mereka, Paul 18. ______ (mencoba) membebaskan diri.”

Pada kalimat tersebut terdapat kata hubung “while” yang menyatakan sesuatu yang sedang berlangsung ketika kejadian lainnya terjadi, sehingga menggunakan Past Continuous Tense.

Pola dari Past Continuous Tense adalah “S + was/were + V-ing + O/C.”

Subjek klausa rumpang nomor 17 adalah orang ketiga tunggal “the burglar” sehingga menggunakan “was.”

Kemudian V-ing dari “look for” adalah “looking for.”

Dengan demikian kalimatnya menjadi “While the burglar was looking for them ….” yang artinya “Sementara pencuri sedang mencari mereka ….”

Jadi, jawaban yang tepat adalah “was looking for.”
