Tasia is saying that the pencil case is ____ the purse, but the purse is ____ the pencil case.

Pembahasan Soal:

Soal meminta kita untuk melengkapi rumpang pada kalimat comparative degree di atas.

Kalimat "Tasia is saying that the pencil case is ____ the purse, but the purse is ____ the pencil case." bermakna Tasia berkata bahwa tempat pensil ____ dompet, tapi dompet ____ tempat pensil.

Rumpang pada kalimat di atas lebih tepat jika dilengkapi dengan pola kalimat comparative yaitu S + to be + (ADJECTIVE)-ER/MORE (ADJECTIVE) + THAN + O.

Dari wacana di atas dapat kita ketahui bahwa tempat pensil lebih bagus dibandingkan dengan dompet tetapi dompet lebih mahal sebagaimana yang disebutkan dalam kalimat "The pencil case is more beautiful but it is cheaper. The purse is simpler but it is more expensive."

Dengan demikian, jawaban yang benar adalah Tasia is saying that the pencil case is more beautiful than the purse, but the purse is more expensive than the pencil case.
