According to the SMU curriculum 1994, English grammatical items are taught at Senior-High School; nevertheless, the students still get some difficulties in learning certain grammatical items. and it is proved by their poor marks in their English formative tests. The reasons above encourage the writer to make a research entitled "A Descriptive Study on The Errors Made by The Second-Year Students of SMEA PGRI 01 Tulungagung in Using Relative Pronouns". The problem of this study refers to the kinds of errors which the second-year students of SMEA PGRI 01 Tulungagung made most in using relative pronouns.

And the results of the findings are described as follows: in using Defining Relative Pronouns, the writer finds that the most error made by the students is Possesive (Po), with its number of errors 181 (75.4%). It is followed by Non-Person (NP) with 168 errors (70%), Person (P) with 138 errors (57.5%), Preposition (Pr) with 128 errors (53.3%) and Thing (T) with 126 errors (52.5%). Meanwhile in using Non-Defining Relative Pronouns, he finds that the most errors made by the students are Possesive (Po) and Non-Person (NP) with 154 errors each (64.2%).
