Black Friday

The day after Thanksgiving is the start of the holiday shopping season. Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday, so the day after is a Friday. This day has come to be known as Black Friday. It has been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005. Most stores offer great deals on Black Friday. They open their doors in the wee hours of the morning. They try to attract shoppers with big discounts.

Some items like TVs are much cheaper than usual. Stores may even lose money on these items. They hope that shoppers will buy gifts for other people while they are in the store. Black Friday is a great time to get good deals. The problem is that there are not enough low-priced items to go around. Each store may only have a few. These items are in high demand. People stand in long lines to get such great deals. They may line up hours before a store opens. They may be hoping to get a low price on a TV or laptop, but not everyone who wants one will get one. Some people leave disappointed.

The situation can be tense. Some Black Friday events have been violent. Large, eager crowds have trampled workers. Fights have broken out or people have been cutting in line. People have shot one another over parking spots. But most Black Friday events are safe and fun. Still, if you plan on going, expect large crowds and a bit of shoving.

Supply the correct form of the words given in brackets. 

There is an example at the beginning (0). EXAMPLE: 0. Traditional

For decades - for centuries, in fact - students have been listening to lectures, reading books and taking exams. But this (0.TRADITION) traditional mode of instruction is becoming ever more (ADEQUACY) as a method of educating our young people. In a complex world (RUN) with information, there’s one skill above all that the next generation will need: the capacity to engage in (CRITICISM) thinking. 

The college would seem to be an ideal time to develop this faculty, but higher education’s often-hidebound ways aren’t doing the job. One widely-cited study found that at least 45 percent of students in its sample did not demonstrate any (STATISTICS) significant improvement in their (REASON) and communication skills during their first two years of college.

Spurred by such findings, educators have sought to engineer new approaches. One that seems to be working: asking undergraduates to conduct actual scientific research. It may seem (PLAUSIBLE) or impractical to expect college students to carry out (AUTHENTICITY) experiments - as (OPPOSITION) to “cookbook” lab exercises with a (ORDAIN) result. But that’s exactly what CUREs are all about. CUREs - course-based undergraduate research experiences - are becoming increasingly popular, (IMPLEMENTATION) at hundreds of colleges and universities across the country.

important question is that of energy conservation. The proportion of income on keeping warm is steadily going up, and, with the cost of energy likely to double in real terms during the next ten years or , many large badly-insulated old houses will become extremely expensive to use. The demand will be small, well-insulated homes located in warm protected areas and making the best of the sun's warmth. Efficient heating units will be of prime importance. At we waste a lot of space in planning rooms which are awkward to use.
