    permisi miss, maaf cuma mau memastikan, saya pernah membaca sebuah artikel di mana ditulis di situ bahwa analytical exposition tdk menggunakan first personal pronoun (I, we, us, me), tapi contoh yg anda berikan menggunakan first personal pronoun. Di mana yg saya baca bahwa jenis text argumentation yg menggunakan first personal pronoun adalah hortatory exposition.. jujur, saya bingung sekali mana yang benar, karena saya akan melaksanakan ppl saya dan mengajar murid2 SMA tntang text tsb, bisa beri saya penjelasan tentang hal tsb. miss? trima kasih..
