Questions 85-87 refer to the following Letter.
Dear Editor,
For a long time, our city was without a public park that was clean and safe for families. Now, thanks to the City Parks and Recreation Department and our mayor, we have a beautiful city park that every citizen can enjoy. And this was done without great cost to our city. Some politicians suggested building a completely new park at a cost of millions of dollars. Instead, at a much smaller cost, the mayor wisely decided to clean up the city park that already existed.
The park was closed for nearly all of last year while the improvements were being made. The Parks and Recreation Department has done a beautiful job. They removed all the trash, planted gardens, and installed new playground equipment. The presence of police and the new lighting system have ensured the safety of citizens using the park. While the park has already been open for a month, a special celebration was held last week. There was a very large turnout.
The newly improved park is a point of pride for our city. I invite all citizens who have not yet seen it to visit it soon.
Nicholas Charles

Lamp Sales Up
Wilson Manufacturers announced that sales of lamps, the company’s major product, increased dramatically during the final quarter of the year. Sales were up 15 percent from the preceding quarter and were 25 percent higher than during the same period of the preceding year. “Of course we normally expect higher sales during the holiday season,” said company spokesperson Amanda Randall. “But that doesn’t explain such a dramatic increase, especially when you compare the figures to last year’s holiday sales. This year’s sales are significantly higher.” Ms. Randall attributes the success to her company’s new approach to marketing. “We’ve put advertisements everywhere, and everyone is talking about them,” she said.

Questions 94-96 refer to the following article.
Cotton is heading for a big slump as this year’s harvest swells supplies. Shortages that drove costs higher than ever before over the past five years are now easing up. As a result, by the end of September, prices had plunged 25 percent for the year and will probably drop even more before the end of December, according to figures reported by the National Cotton Producers Association. In the meantime, supplies have expanded, boosting inventories to higher levels than have been seen in at least five years. Cotton production is expanding and is expected to continue to do so. Last year’s price rise encouraged farmers to plant more, and successful methods of combating common diseases and pests have increased crop yields. The continuing spell of favorable weather has also been encouraging to cotton producers, many of whom were almost wiped out by the droughts of the past decade. The National Cotton Producers Association will release the final figures for this year’s harvest in its annual report, due out in January.
