A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF STUDENTS READING COMPREHENSION ACHIEVEMENT IN GUESSING AND MAKING INFERENCES TECHNIQUES
INTRODUCTION
English  is  an  important  subject  that  should  be  mastered  by  students  of  Senior High  School.  The  students  should  be  able  to  master  not  only  one  language  skill, but  also  the  other  skills  in  English,  i.e.  listening,  speaking,  reading,  and  writing. From  the  four  aspects,  the  research  focuses  only  on  reading  comprehension  of students  because  the  students  do  not  really  get  a  better  technique  to  comprehend the text. 
Based on pre-observation of students in SMAN ???, it was found that  there  were  some  problems  which  students  faced  when  they  studied  English, especially in reading comprehension. The problems covered the low motivation of the students, vocabulary mastery, structure of a sentence, finding the main idea of a text, and generic structure of a text. 
The students’ low motivation might be caused by teacher who less stimulates them  to  learn.  They  were  only  asked  to  read  passages  and  answer  the  questions with  no  explanation  about  it  before  the  teaching  process.  Consequently,  it  might make  them  be  more  confused  in  comprehending  the  text.  Besides,  the inappropriate  selection  of  the  text  which  was  discussed  in  the  class  might  not attract  the  students’  attention.  Therefore,  the  students  could  not  reach  the minimum criteria of required curriculum. 
Likewise,  the  studies  (see,  e.g.  Ayu,  2013;  Andam,  2013;  and  Kurnia,  2013) indicate that SMA students experience many difficulties in their reading, such as?????????????????????????????????????????????
