A. the fifteen-year-old French girl

"Franch" itu nama negara, kalau "French" itu kata sifatnya. Jadi dari sini jawaban D dan E salah.

Dalam bahasa Inggris, umur disebutkan lebih dulu daripada daerah asalnya, jadi yang benar A.

Maaf, Mbak Intan. Jawaban anda benar, tapi alasan pemilihan  A. the fifteen-year-old French girl

  berdasarkan "nama negara atau letak umur yang harus didepan daerah asal" adalah tidak tepat. Karena kalau itu alasannya, maka seharusnya  C. the fifteen-years-old French girl

  juga benar, dong.

Alasan kenapa A. the fifteen-year-old French girl

adalah jawaban yang benar: karena  fifteen-year-old

  merupakan salah satu bentuk compound adjective, dan compound adjective biasanya digunakan dalam bentuk singular sehingga harus  fifteen-year-old

, bukan  fifteen-year ;text-decoration: underline">s

-old

Contoh-contoh lain dari penggunaan compound adjective: five-minute

delay, three-hour

movie, two-storey

house, six-foot-tall

basketball player.

Last but not least, "Franch" bukan nama negara. Yang benar adalah "France"
