Pembahasan

Berdasarkan ceritanya, dapat diketahui bahwa Mercury menolong si Tukang Kayu dengan mengambilkan kapak yang merupakan benda kepemilikannya sehingga pilihan jawaban property adalah yang paling tepat karena ‘property’ dapat bermakna ‘benda kepemilikan’. Pilihan dagger salah karena artinya ‘belati’ dan kurang tepat karena berbeda dengan kapak (axe), Pilihan assets salah karena walau artinya ‘benda kepemilikan’ tapi ditulis dalam bentuk jamak padahal yang hilang hanyalah sebuah, Pilihan clothes dan body salah karena artinya ‘baju’ dan ‘tubuh’ yang tidak relevan.
