This study looks into how students create interpersonal meaning when writing analytical exposition texts. The purpose of this study is to describe the most prevalent mood kinds as well as the modality realization techniques employed in the text. To evaluate, nine texts were selected from a total of 144. The framework for analyzing the clauses of the text is based on Systemic Functional Linguistics ideas. Students employed mood types, as evidenced by the usage of subject and finite as mood elements, and predicator, adjunct, and complement as residue, according to the findings of this study. The mood element ad residue arrangement reveals the mood type they utilized. Students sought to give information in the text, as seen by the results. In terms of modality, the median modality appears more frequently in this text than the high and low modality options. It shows that the pupils are making an effort to position themselves in the text and develop a relationship with the reader. Furthermore, the students did not present any possibilities for readers to dispute their position in the text, as seen by the zero frequency of low modality. Finally, as a pedagogical implication, the problem-solving approach is appropriate for students to improve cognitive aspects in terms of communicative skills, resulting in students being able to write an effective analytical exposition text that is intended to critically discuss something from one point of view.
