The question is based on the following passage.
Never Try Smoking
A lot of people, especially teenagers, who do not smoke, always want to try smoking. They know it is bad for them and all, but it is just something they want to try. So they ask one of their smoker friends for a cigarette. Admittedly, they firstly cannot light it on their own so they ask his friend to do it. Then they inhale that cigarette and smoke occasionally.
Apparently that makes them the born smokers. Now they do smoke fairly regularly. They cannot avoid smoking and they enjoy too. They have smoker friends. Every day they bring a pack in their pocket. For them, a pack of cigarette is as important as a wallet for their money.
Suddenly, for certain reason, they realize the fact that tobacco is the cause of a long list of nasty diseases. It is not only heart disease, stroke, and chronic lung disease but also bladder, lung, and pancreatic cancer. Even it was reported that around 400,000 Americans died each year. It was one every 80 seconds from tobacco-related illnesses.
Then they decide it is stupid to harm selves. They want to quit smoking. Unfortunately, they find that quitting smoking is so difficult. “Why can’t I stop smoking? I really want to stop it”. It is hard to quit because nicotine is powerfully addictive. Cigarette is one of the most efficient drug-delivery devices ever devised. As result, when people try to quit smoking, they often experience classic nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, irritability, headache, depression, and restlessness. The arguments explained before suggest that everyone should never try smoking.
“Even it was reported that around 400,000 Americans died each year.” (Paragraph 3)
The writer’s intention in writing this sentence is to ….
emphasize how dangerous smoking is
provide example of the danger of smoking
tell the number of American people died every year
ask people to quit smoking
report death rate of American smoker
Kalimat pada soal memiliki arti “Bahkan dilaporkan bahwa sekitar 400.000 orang Amerika meninggal setiap tahun.”
Lalu, pada kalimat berikutnya, penulis menjelaskan “Setiap 80 detik, satu orang meninggal akibat penyakit yang berhubungan dengan rokok.”
Jadi, tujuan penulis menyatakan kalimat tersebut adalah untuk menekankan betapa berbahaya merokok itu.
Dengan demikian, jawaban yang tepat adalah A.
