The collected data were analyzed by calculating the scores of the students in answering the test and classified them to a certain level of ability in choosing conjunctions. The result showed that 3 out of 29 students (10.34%) were in the excellent level of ability, 6 students (20.69%) were in the good level of ability, 8 students (27.59%) were in the average level and 12 students (41.38%) were in the poor level. The students’average score was 52.67. This meant that the students’ ability in choosing conjunctions was in average level of ability. The most difficult type of conjunction for the students is subordinating conjunctions with the mean score 49.48 whereas the easiest one is coordinating conjunctions with the mean score 56.90.
