1953, Monroe became the world’s biggest movie star with her excellent performances in Gentlemen Prefer

Akita Keizaihoka University has recently introduced a ban on “unusual” hairstyles and colourings,
as well as pierced earrings and body piercings that might make other people feel
_____________36. The university regulations state, in particular, that students should avoid
bright coloured dyes, maintain decency, and have hygienic hair. The university has threatened to
take disciplinary action against students who _____________37 the rules. He also said it would
also offer a financial gift of 10,000 yen (£45) to each of the students to make
their_____________38 of the ban easier. However, some students have criticized the move as an
attack on their freedom of _____________39. The chief director of the university, Ken Koizumi,
blamed worsening public morality on the increasing number of young people with no skills who
switch between part-time jobs and make no _____________40 to society. He thinks that a poorly
turned-out student represent the university badly. The university claims the regulations were
designed to _____________41 students to behave as upstanding members of society, and

not the new regulation will help to _____________42 in strengthening university’s reputation is

Why aren't some people satisfied with traditional sports such as tennis, basketball, and skiing? Why do they
feel the need to push their limits and do extreme sports like white water rafting or canyoning, which
____________43 a lot of danger? One answer may be that life today is much easier than it was in the past. Dayto-day survival used to be much more physical than it is nowadays. Our ancestors used to ____________44
most of their time to physical activities such as hunting and farming, that is chasing down animals and
labouring to raise crops. Nowadays, the food-gathering workout for the average person is nothing more than
pushing a shopping cart down a supermarket aisle, which is not really a/an ____________45 experience. Many
people today work at jobs that ____________46 them to use their brains, but not their bodies. With the
Internet, it's true that there is a whole world of information at our fingertips, but much of it is second-hand.
The ____________47 of this situation is that many of us do not directly experience the things that we already
know. Here is another reason why extreme sports are gaining popularity: when faced with a highly exciting
situation, the body starts to ____________48 the hormone adrenaline. According to both research and the
extreme athletes themselves, this hormone creates a state of ____________49 excitement. The extremists
eventually become “adrenaline junkies” and they end up being unable to do without adrenaline. They feel
____________50 to put their lives at risk and enjoy the excitement.
