Read the passage and choose the suitable word to fill in the blanks.

Babies start laughing very soon after they are born. Deaf and blind people can laugh although they have never heard or seen anyone laughing. Laughing seems to be a part of nature, but what is it for?

Many people think that we laugh because we see or hear something funny; , most of the time this is not true. No one really knows the reasons why we laugh, but one idea is that it makes people feel good. Laughter can stop negative feelings and help people to feel closer to each other.

It also seems that laughter is good for your health. The writer Norman Cousins, had a serious back pain, wrote that watching comedy programs on TV helped him to feel better. He said that ten minutes of laughter gave him two hours of sleep without pain.

(Adapted from English Unlimited by Tilbury, Clementson, Hendra and Rea)

Read the following passage and choose the correct answers.

Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is in the south-east of the country. Edinburgh is situated on the coast, and the beautiful, green Pentland hills are not far from the city centre. Castle Rock stands in the centre of Edinburgh and is the best place for fantastic views of the city. With a population of almost half a million people, the city is an exciting mix of traditional and modern. 

The first stop for most visitors to the city is the castle on Castle Rock. It is certainly worth a visit and the area nearby is full of shops that sell whisky and tartans to the tourists. Edinburgh's most famous street, the Royal Mile, runs from the castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Scottish Parliament. Along the street, you can see many interesting buildings and you can stop for a drink at a traditional, old Scottish pub.

During your visit, you should certainly take the time to see other parts of the city. Princes Street has lovely gardens, museums and shops. The New Town is a superb area for walking with its attractive 18th-century houses, offices and churches. Finally, the Grassmarket is an old part of the city, which is full of cafés, bars and restaurants.

Edinburgh's nightlife is excellent. Clubs usually stay open until three in the morning. You can hear live music in pubs, choose from a number of first-class cinemas or go to a 'ceilidh' (a traditional Scottish dance).

The best time to come to the city is in August. Thousands of people visit the Edinburgh Festival, the world's biggest arts festival held every summer. With concerts, opera, theater and art exhibitions, there is something for everyone. For winter visitors, Hogmanay (the Scottish New Year) is also an incredible experience that you will never forget.
