Pembahasan

Berdasarkan kalimat “...he created a series  of dramas without any dialogs” yang terdapat pada kalimat pertama di paragraf ke-3, dapat diketahui bahwa kata ‘mini word’ terinspirasi dari drama yang tidak menggunakan dialog, melainkan hanya suara-suara sederhana saja sehingga pilihan jawaban (C) adalah yang paling tepat. Pilihan jawaban (they used only simple sounds) salah karena mereka juga menggunakan gestur tubuh dan (the actors just kept silent during the show) salah karena pemainnya tidak hanya terdiam.
