Gede Murta

Sekilas pertanyaan ini terlihat sama arti dan maknanya. Namun, eittss jangan salah dua kalimat ini memiliki makna dan arti yang berbeda. Mau tau bedanya apa? Yuk kita lihat penjelasannya di bawah ini:

Perhatikan gambar berikut:

bear

 

Ann and Ted saw a bear. (Mereka melihat seekor beruang)

Who saw a bear? (Siapa yang melihat seekor beruang?

Ann and Ted. Ann and Ted saw a bear. (Ann dan Ted melihat beruang)

 

Who did Ann and Ted see? (Siapa yang Ann and Ted lihat?

A Bear. They saw a bear. (Mereka melihat seekor beruang.

Jadi, dapat disimpulkan bahwa:

 

                                                  Ann and Ted saw a bear

         subjek                                                                                                    objek

Somebody saw a bear                                                                 Ann and Ted saw somebody

Who saw a bear?                                                                          Who did Ann and Ted see?

 

Who is the subject                                                                            Who is the object

A bear is the object                                                                          Ann and Ted is the subject

 

Coba perhatikan contoh percakapan di bawah ini:

Andri: Hi Amy, how’s your weekend?

Amy: Hi Andri, my weekend was creepy, how about you?

Andri: My weekend was great. What happened? Where did you go?

Amy: I went to Sam’s birthday party. When I was there, I saw my ex-boyfriend with his new girlfriend. I was so shocked. Unfortunately, when they were dancing, he looked at me and he just turned his face. OOhhhh…. Whatta a bad day!

Andri: Who did you see?? Your ex-boyfriend? Oooh what a coincidental incident! And who saw you at the party?

Amy: Yes, I saw my ex-boyfriend. Grrgghhh stop asking please. I didn’t know who saw me at that time. Accidently, he also looked at me.

Andri: Poor you Amy, hope you can have a lot of joyful after you see him. Hahhaha… cheers.

Pada percakapan di atas dapat disimpulkan bahwa ‘Who did you see?’ mengarah pada, siapa yang Amy lihat pada saat itu? Dan Amy menjawab, “I saw my ex- boyfriend”, jadi ex-boyfriend sebagai OBJEK, jadi yang ditanyakan pada pertanyaan itu adalah “OBJEKnya”, sedangkan pertanyaan ‘Who saw you?’ mengarah pada siapa yang melihat Amy? Dan Amy menjawab, “He also looked at me”, He sebagai SUBJEK, jadi yang ditanyakan pada pertanyaan itu adalah “SUBJEKnya”.

So, now u know the difference guys!
