None of the women soldiers in the camp wanted to do this. One day Captain Jones saw a new woman soldier. She was a tall, very beautiful girl. Captain Jones went to her and said, "Would you mind becoming a member of the choir at our church?"

The girl was very surprised and said, "But, sir, I can't sing at all!"

다음 빈칸에 들어갈 말로 가장 적절한 것을 고르시오.

 

It is very important to help poor countries, but it’s not simple. We should be giving money or food directly to the poor in emergencies like an earthquake or flood. In less emergent situations, however, providing food can make people dependent. If a developed country gives food to a poor country, its local farmers will find it difficult to produce food to sell. We need to help poor people to earn their own money, or to produce their own food. Just giving them money or food is not a good idea. We have to find a way to help them __________________________.

 

① encounter poverty

② prevent natural disasters

③ supported free of charge

④ develop a new technology

⑤ stand on their own two feet

[With this problem, we normally seek to find the winner. ]

 

There is a single tennis tournament. It is a knockout tournament. ① One player plays against another and the winner plays the winner of another match - and so on until there is a final winner. ② There is one final, two semi-finals, four quarter-finals, and so on. ③ Now, let's suppose there are 72 entries. How many games will be required to find the winner? I sometimes use this problem in my seminars, and the audience usually get quite upset when I only give them 10 seconds to find the answer. ④ With lateral thinking, there is another possibility. Forget about a winner; let us find the losers. ⑤ Each game produces one loser. So, 71 games are needed. That only takes five seconds.
