Jakarta post: Researches have found a technique to quickly assess disorders in babies. This new method, published Wednesday in the magazine Science Translational Medicine, is a proof of concept that it's possible to quickly scan a baby's entire DNA and pinpoint a disease-causing mutation in a couple of days instead of the more typical weeks as months. The study investigation to four babies said that the test could be one of the first practical fruits of the revolution in sequencing an individual's entire DNA.

The idea behind the test is to take advantage of what is known about disease symptoms to narrow the search for genetic. And that is a good step in the right direction, said Dr. Joe Gray, an expert in genome analysis at Oregon Health and Science University, "It's a big genome," said Dr. Joe Gray, who was not involved with the study "How do you know what part of it to search?

While more research needs to be done before the test is ready for widespread use, he applauded the effort "If people don't push the envelope like this, then we won't get there,"Dr. Gray said.

"...., he applauded the effort ...." (Paragraph 3). The underlined word is closest in meaning to ....

  1. clapped hands

  2. appreciated

  3. encouraged

  4. objected

  5. refused

Secara harfiah, kata ‘applauded’ dapat bermakna ‘bertepuk tangan’ atau ‘clapped hands’, tetapi dalam konteks kalimat “...he applauded the effort”, kata ‘applauded’ dikiaskan menjadi menghargai usaha atau ‘appreciated the effort’ sehingga pilihan jawaban (B) adalah yang paling tepat. Pilihan jawaban (C) salah karena bermakna ‘mendorong’, lalu (D) dan (E) salah karena bermakna ‘menolak’.
