Jawaban
jawaban yang benar adalah E.
Pembahasan
Stative verb adalah kata kerja yang tidak menunjukkan aktivitas fisik. sang artinya bernyanyi dan released artinya merilis. Kata ini menunjukkan aktivitas fisik. made artinya membuat. Secara umum, kata ini menunjukkan aktivitas fisik. Namun dalam konteks kalimat di atas, penggunaan made sedikit berbeda.“. It made her becoming a very popular singer during 90s.” Artinya “Album pertamanya itu membuatnya menjadi penyanyi yang sangat populer selama tahun 90-an.” ‘Membuat’ di sini menunjukkan efek dari perilisan album pertama tersebut, sehingga tidak dapat dikategorikan sebagai active verb. announced artinya mengumumkan dan sold artinya menjual. Kedua kata tersebut melibatkan aktivitas fisik. got artinya mendapatkan, kata ini juga secara konteks kalimat termasuk ke dalam stative verb karena tidak menunjukkan aktivitas fisik secara nyata. Jadi, jawaban yang benar adalah E.
