Jawaban

  1. b. May he qualify for the position? | Declarative sentence punya may (auxiliary verb). Gunakan rumus: auxiliary verb + S + main verb (bare infinitive) … ?
  2. a. Was Jusuf Kalla the 10th Vice President of Indonesia? | Declarative sentence punya was (linking verb “be”). Gunakan rumus: be (am/is/are/was/were) + S + complement?
  3. a. Does Veralia like swimming? | Karena declarative sentence tidak punya auxiliary maupun linking verb, maka untuk membentuk yes-no question dibutuhkan dummy auxiliary (do/does/did). Gunakan rumus: do/does/did + S + main verb (bare infinitive) … ?
  4. b. Have the passengers been waiting for thirty minutes? | Ada dua auxiliary verb (have, been) pada declarative sentence ini. Hanya yg pertama yang dipindahkan ke awal kalimat.
  5. a. Can’t a person drive a car on public roads without a driver’s licence? | Pada negative yes-no question, not langsung ditambahkan setelah linking verb “be” atau auxiliary verb.
  6. b. Have all the graduate students finished their dissertation? | Declarative sentence merupakan kalimat present perfect tense. Dengan demikian memiliki auxiliary verb have. Gunakan rumus: auxiliary verb + S + main verb (past participle) … ?
  7. b. Did Aldo come late yesterday? | Declarative sentence hanya punya main verb came (tanpa auxiliary maupun linking verb). Dengan demikian diperlukan dummy auxiliary (do/does/did). Gunakan rumus: do/does/did + S + main verb (bare infinitive) … ?
  8. b. Were they so naughty? | Declarative sentence punya were (linking verb “be”). Gunakan rumus: be (am/is/are/was/were) + S + complement?
  9. b. Are the children having their lunch now? | Declarative sentence (present continuous tense) punya are (auxiliary verb). Gunakan rumus: auxiliary verb + S + main verb (present participle) … ?
  10. a. Will he be working out at the gym tomorrow morning? | Hanya auxiliary verb yg pertama (will) yang dipindahkan ke awal kalimat.
