Correct any errors by inserting "Can/Could" or "to be able to" when necessary!


His handwriting was so bad that I not read his letter at first.

Jawaban:

Kata-kata can, could, dan be able to adalah kata-kata yang digunakan untuk mengekspresikan kesanggupan atau kemampuan. Dalam Bahasa Indonesia, kita umumnya menggunakan kata-kata seperti bisa, dapat, atau mampu.

Can dan could adalah modal yang memiliki arti yang sama, tetapi berbeda dalam hal tense: can digunakan untuk present tense dan could untuk past tense. Pola penggunaan can/could dalam kalimat positif dan negatif adalah  S + can/could (+ not) + V1 (kata not ditambahkan hanya dalam kalimat negatif). Pola penggunaan can/could dalam pertanyaan Wh- dan Yes/No adalah (Wh-) + can/could + S + V1 (kata tanya Wh- hanya ditambahkan pada pertanyaan Wh-)

Contoh penggunaan can/could dalam kalimat:
The students could (can) complete the test quickly.
The students could (can) not complete the test quickly.
We can (could) catch the plane on time.
We can (could) not be able to catch the plane on time.
Can (could) the students complete the test?
Can (could) we catch the plane on time?
What can (could) you do in a stressful situation?
What can (could) we do in an emergency?

Berbeda dengan can/could, be able to bukan modal, meskipun sama-sama mengekspresikan kesanggupan atau kemampuan. Pola penggunaan be able to dalam kalimat positif dan negatif adalah  S + to be (+ not) + able to + V1 atau S + modal (+ not) + be able to +V1 (kata not hanya digunakan dalam kalimat negatif). Pola penggunaan be able to dalam pertanyaan Wh- dan Yes/No adalah (Wh-) + be + S + able to + V1 atau (Wh-) + modal + S + be able to + V1 (kata tanya Wh- hanya digunakan dalam pertanyaan Wh-).

Contoh penggunaan be able to dalam kalimat:
The students were able to complete the test quickly.
The students were not able to complete the test quickly.
We may be able to catch the plane on time.
We may not be able to catch the plane on time.
Were the students able to complete the test?
Will we be able to catch the plane on time?
What are you able to do in a stressful situation?
What must we be able to do in an emergency?


Jadi, jawaban yang benar untuk soal di atas adalah:

"His handwriting was so bad that I could not read his letter at first."

"His handwriting was so bad that I was not able to read his letter at first."
