D. Ubahlah Kalimat Di Bawah Ini Menjadi Kalimat Positif, Negatif Dan Interogatif

Clues:

Untuk kalimat negatif dan interogatif pilihlah kata kerja mana yang harus diubah menjadi negatif atau positif sehingga kalimatnya menjadi rasional.

Example:

I (lose) my wallet while I (go) with motorcycle to office.

(+) I was losing my wallet while I was going with motorcycle to office.

(-) I was not losing my wallet while I was going with motorcycle to office.

(?) Was I losing my wallet while I was going with motorcycle to office?

Kata kerja ‘lose’ diubah menjadi negatif dan interogatif bukan ‘go’ nya karena ada kemungkinan dia kehilangan dompetnya sewaktu pergi ke kantor. Selain itu kalimat ‘I was going with motorcycle’ bukanlah inti utama dari maksud kalimat ini, tetapi kedudukannya sebagai Time clause / time signal (kata keterangan waktu) biarpun tidak gamblang seperti last night atau this time yesterday.
