Most people at their first consultation take a furtive look at the surgeon’s hands in the hope of reassurance. Prospective patients look for delicacy, sensitivity, steadiness, perhaps unblemished pallor. On this basis, Henry Perowne loses a number of cases each year. Generally, he knows it’s about to happen before the patient does: the downward glance repeated, the prepared questions beginning to falter, the overemphatic thanks during the retreat to the door. (_________________)

A] Other people do not communicate due to their poor observation

B] Other patients don’t like what they see but are ignorant of their right to go elsewhere

C] But Perowne himself is not concerned

D] But others will take their place, he thought

E] These hands are steady enough, but they are large

Age has a curvilinear relationship with the exploitation of opportunity. Initially, age will increase the likelihood that a person will exploit an entrepreneurial opportunity because people gather much of the knowledge necessary to exploit opportunities over the course of their lives, and because age provides credibility in transmitting that information to others. However, as people become older, their willingness to bear risks declines, their opportunity costs rise, and they become less receptive to new information. (_________________)

A] As a result, people transmit more information rather than experiment with new ideas as they reach an advanced age

B] As a result, people are reluctant to experiment with new ideas as they reach an advanced age

C] As a result, only people with lower opportunity costs exploit opportunity when they reach an advanced age.

D] As a result, people become reluctant to exploit entrepreneurial opportunities when they reach an advanced age

E] As a result, people depend on credibility rather than on novelty as they reach an advanced age

Let us understand the definition of metaphysics, a purely speculative science, which occupies a completely isolated position and is entirely independent of the teachings of experience. It deals with mere conceptions--not, like mathematics, with conceptions applied to intuition--and in it, reason is the pupil of itself alone. It is the oldest of the sciences. (_________________)

A]And it would struggle to survive without the architecture of mathematical support that it draws its strength from

B]Yet it continued to baffle mankind because of its abstractions

C]But it has never had and never will have the good fortune to attain to the sure scientific method

D] And it would still survive, even if all the rest were swallowed up in the abyss of an all-destroying barbarism

Relations between the factory and the dealer are distant and usually strained as the factory tries to force cars on the dealers to smooth out production. Relations between the dealer and the customer are equally strained because dealers continuously adjust prices - make deals - to adjust demand with supply while maximizing profits. This becomes a system marked by a lack of long-term commitment on either side, which maximize feelings of mistrust. In order to maximize their bargaining positions, everyone holds back information - the dealer about the product and the consumer about his true desires. (_________________)

A] As a result, ‘deal making’ becomes rampant, without concern for customer satisfaction

B] As a result, inefficiencies creep into the supply chain

C] As a result, everyone treats the other as an adversary, rather than as an ally

D] As a result, fundamental innovations are becoming scarce in the automobile industry

E] As a result, everyone loses in the long run

The Time Traveler (for so it will be convenient to speak of him) was expounding a recondite matter to us. His grey eyes shone and twinkled, and his usually pale face was flushed and animated. The fire burned brightly, and the soft radiance of the incandescent lights in the lilies of silver caught the bubbles that flashed and passed in our glasses. Our chairs, being his patents, embraced and caressed us rather than submitted to be sat upon, and there was that luxurious after-dinner atmosphere when thought roams gracefully free of the trammels of precision. (_________________)

1] And slowly and steadily, the atmosphere grew stale and lost all the vibrancy it had

2] And he put it to us in this way—marking the points with a lean forefinger—as we sat and lazily admired his earnestness over this new paradox (as we thought it)   and his fecundity

3] We sat like toddlers do in a nursery, eagerly anticipating the show the Time      Traveler would put on for us

4] We sat benumbed by the proceedings, for the radiance of the Time Traveler was  unimaginable and unbearable
