The Netherlands

Welcome to the Netherlands, a tiny country that only extends, at its broadest, 312 km north to south, and 264 km east to west - (1) ........ the land area increases slightly each year as a (2) .......... of continuous land reclamation and drainage. With a lot of heart and much to offer, 'Holland,' as it is (3) ... known to most of us abroad - a name stemming (4) ............ its once most prominent provinces - has more going on per kilometre than most countries, and more English-speaking natives. You'll be impressed by its (5) ........... cities and charmed by its countryside and villages, full of contrasts. From the exciting variety (6) ........... offer, you could choose a romantic canal boat tour in Amsterdam, a Royal Tour by coach in The Hague, or a hydrofoil tour around the biggest harbour in the world - Rotterdam. In season you could visit the dazzling bulb fields, enjoy a full day on a boat, or take a bike tour through the pancake-flat countryside spiced with windmills. The possibilities are countless and the nationwide tourist office, which is on hand to give you information and (7) ............ reservations. You'll have (8) .......... language problems here, as the Dutch are true linguists and English is spoken here almost universally.

About Fish and Aquariums

There are more than 200,000 species of fish (0)......... (HABIT) many (1)........... (DIFFER) waters. New species of fish are discovered every year. From the deepest part of the seas thousands of feet down in total (2)......... (DARK), to the beautiful aqua-blue waters of the coral reefs, to the streams, lakes, and ponds of freshwater found throughout the world, fish have adapted an incredible variety of life-forms, styles, and (3)......... (BEHAVE). The group of aquatic animals we call fishes has evolved for over 400 million years to be the most (4).......... (NUMBER) and diverse of the major vertebrate groups. Forty-one percent of the world's fish species inhabit only fresh water. This is pretty (5)........... (AMAZE) considering that fresh water covers only 1 percent of the world's surface. As you probably already know salt water covers 70 percent of the earth's surface. So the number and (6).......... (VARY) of fresh water species to marine or saltwater species is all the more mind-boggling. While they inhabit the smallest amount of water, they have, in fact, adapted to a much (7)........ ( WIDE) range of habitats and to a greater variety of water conditions. Let's take a closer look at the unique adaptations of fish that have allowed them to live so (8)......... (SUCCESS) in the medium we call water.

Scotland

People come to this small northern country for many reasons, lured, perhaps, by the promise of spectacular (1) ..., friendly natives, and a vibrant arts scene. Some are searching for their family (2) ...  or others just want to get away from it all and, digging (3) ... old memories from their English Lit class of gallant heroes engaging in larger-than-life struggles, their (4) ...   wander to faraway lands, to somehow familiar yet different destinations. Why not go to Scotland? But what kind of country are they coming to and what should they expect once they get there? Scotland (5) ... of an area of 30, 418 square miles - so it's a fairly compact and "doable" country - with a population of about five million people - not too small, not too big. It is one of three countries that form the political (6) ...  called Great Britain, the other two being, of course, England and Wales, which, along with their fourth partner, Northern Ireland, becomes the United Kingdom. Scotland is bordered on three sides by water and on its fourth by England, which has had both its advantages and disadvantages. Geographically speaking, the country can be divided into three broad areas, the Southern Uplands, the Central Lowlands, and the Highlands. Although the rugged Highlands (7) ...  about two-thirds of the land area, the (8) ...  majority of the population lives in the Central Belt between Glasgow, Scotland's largest city, and Edinburgh, Scotland's capital.

EXAMPLE  (0)  INTENDED

Muscle Cars

Muscle cars were never (0).......... (INTEND) to be valuable. In fact, the whole idea behind muscle cars was to make them (1)........... (EXPENSIVE) and fast. Muscle cars were stripped-down versions of the most (2) ...........(UTILITY) homely, and basic mass-produced cars to ever roll out of Detroit. These rattle trap, bare bones, crude devices were built to conform to a price point with little regard given to sophistication or (3) ..........(LONG), and aimed squarely at the (4)............... (YOUNG) market. And this market couldn't get enough of them. These were the cars every red-blooded American kid wanted. The image, the speed, the lifestyle were all highly addictive. Looking back, the muscle car years were a (5) .............(RELATIVE) brief moment in time that we will never see the likes of again. It was a perfect storm, just what the market wanted, and was presented at the right place in the right time. So how did these seemingly (6)..........( DIPOSE) cars, built in large numbers and owned by kids who (7) ..........(LITERAL) tried to kill themselves from the first twist of the key, become so valuable? More importantly, why did they become so valuable? Most people are astounded when they hear the recent sales results of the most (8)...........(DESIRE) muscle cars. We call them two-comma cars, cars that are worth so much money that you need two commas to separate all the zeroes in the price.
