This year started horribly for China. When a respiratory virus spread in Wuhan, Communist Party

officials’ instinct was to hush it up. Some predicted that this might be China’s “Chernobyl”- a reference to how

the Kremlin’s lies over a nuclear accident (1. HASTE) _________ the collapse of the Soviet Union. They were

wrong. After its initial bungling, China’s ruling party swiftly imposed a quarantine of breathtaking scope and

severity. The (2. LOCK) _________seems to have worked. The number of newly reported cases of COVID-19 has

slowed to a trickle. Factories in China are (3. OPEN) _________. Researchers there are rushing candidate

vaccines into trials. Meanwhile, the official death toll has been far exceeded by Britain, France, Spain, Italy and


Some, including nervous foreign-policy watchers in the West, have concluded that China will be the

winner from the COVID catastrophe. They warn that the pandemic will be remembered not only as human

disaster, but also a geopolitical (4. POINT) ____________ away from America.

That view has taken root partly by default. President Donald Trump seems to have no interest in

leading the global response to the virus. Previous American presidents led campaigns against HIV/AIDS and


Ebola. Mr. Trump has vowed to (5. FUND) __________ the World Health Organization (WHO) for its alleged pro-

China bias. With the main in the White House claiming “absolute power” but saying “I don’t take any (6.


RESPOND) _______ at all” , China has a chance to enhance its away.

Even so, it may not succeed. For one thing, there is no way to know whether China’s record in dealing

with COVID19 is as impressive as it claims – let alone as good as the records of competent democracies such

as South Korean or Taiwan. (7. SIDE) ___________ cannot check if China’s secretive officials have been candid

about the number of coronavirus cases and deaths. An (8. AUTHOR) ________ regime can tell factories to start

up, but it cannot force consumers to buy their products. For as long as the pandemic rages, it is too soon to


know whether people will end up crediting China for suppressing the disease or blaming it for suppressing

the doctors in Wuhan who first raised the alarm.

Another obstacle is that China’s propaganda is often crass and unpleasant. China’s mouthpieces do not

merely praise their own leaders; some also gloat over America’s dysfunction or promote wild conspiracy

theories about the virus being an American (9. WEAPON) ___________. For some days Africans in Guangzhou

were being evicted en masse from their homes, barred from hotels and then harassed for sleeping in the

streets, (10. APPEAR) _________ because local officials feared they might be infected. Their plight has generated

angry headlines and diplomatic rebukes all over Africa.

After winning the Wimbledon singles title, the greatest prize in tennis, Stanislav Drobny was inside

himself with joy. There had been suggestions in the popular newspapers that he was under the hill, but he had

proven them wrong. Beyond a shade of a doubt he had been the most inconsistent player in the tournament.

When he was interviewed immediately after his victory by the BBC he is, of course, out of breath, but it was

quite obvious he was over the dream. He said his victory was beyond belief and he thanked all the people who

had worked so hardly behind the scenes to insure his success. After speaking to him, I am of the opinion which

he’s quite capable of coming back next year and repeating this remarkable performances.






Promoting children’s self-esteem seems to be one of the aims of modern childcare and education. It

goes (1) _____________ with a culture in which children are (2) _____________ praised for the most minor

achievements. While this promotion of self-esteem is, rightly, a reaction against (3) _____________ times when

children weren’t praised enough, it also seems to be (4) _____________ a fear of how failure will affect children:

a fear that if they don’t succeed at a task, they will somehow be damaged.

However, the opposite may well be true. Many scientists spend years experiencing (5) _____________

failure in the lab until they make a breakthrough. They know that ultimately this process advances scientific

knowledge. (6) _____________, children need to experience failure to learn and grow. If children have been

praised for everything they’ve done, regardless of how good it is, then failure in adult life will be all the more


Life is full of (7) _____________and there is no point in trying to protect children from the disappointments

that (8) _____________them. Parents and educators shouldn’t be afraid of picking up on children’s mistakes, as

long as they also praise them when they do well. After all, the heroes children try to (9) _____________, the pop

stars and footballers, have all reached the top (10) _____________ ruthless competition. Like them, children need

to learn how to cope with failure and turn it to their advantage.

Does wealth have anything to do with how (1) _____ and generous a person is? Can we (2) _____ greater

generosity to the better off in society? And are people stingier the less (3) _____ they are? Research by

psychologists in the UK and the US has revealed that, on the contrary, when it comes to cha rity and (4) _____,

it seems that poverty brings out the (5) _____ in people. They found that although the wealthiest gave more in

When writers attempt to anticipate the future, they often only succeed in providing an interpretation

of the present. This may be seen in the fantasies produced by science fiction writers in the middle of the

twentieth century. Almost nothing has turned (1)_______________ the way that these writers expected. Although

they (2) _______________ manage to predict intelligent robots, they completely failed to anticipate the

developments in communications technology that would make them possible. This (3) _______________ that

science fiction writers before 1980 now seems absurdly dated, and what strikes you most is the curious

absence of personal computers, e-mail and the Internet. Science fiction writers, it seems, were remarkably (4)

_______________on the uptake when (5) _______________ came to grasping the extent to (6) _______________ the nature

of communications would change.

Instead, their focus was (7) _______________ much on rocket technology and space travel. For they (8)

_______________ not to know that the lunar landings, so exciting at that time, would actually lead nowhere. There

are no human colonies on the Moon, (9) _______________ alone on Mars and the idea that people might eventually

populate the cosmos seems even (10) _______________ within the realms of possibility now than it did then,

despite half a century of bewilderingly rapid technological progress. What’s more, scientists have even begun


to ridicule the notion, fundamental to much science fiction, that one day we just might encounter intelligent

revolutionary France and Weimar Germany; (3) _____ bundles of notes were needed to pay for a loaf of bread.

But what is inflation? Briefly, it may be defined as a continual increase in prices affecting the economy. The

rate of inflation is determined (4) _____ changes in the price level, which is an average of all prices. When (5)

_____prices rise while others fall, this will not necessarily affect the price level, as inflation occurs (6) _____ if

most major prices increase. The problem with inflation is that it reduces the value of purchasing power of

money, as well as eroding people's savings. Wage increases which are below or equal (7) _____ the level of

inflation will result in a declining or static (8) _____ of living for workers, while wage increases above the rate

of inflation will merely stoke the fire for further inflation. So what can a government do to stop the process?

It can increase taxes, raise interest rates, decrease the money supply, reduce government spending or set a

ceiling (9) _____ price and wage rises. Why none of these is a popular measure is understandable, but if they

reduce inflation (10)_____ a mild two to four percent per annum, as opposed to allowing it to rise to double -
