65.Some people assert that nothing is impossible. Such people should get a grip on reality and understand it's impossible to create another Universe. In more down-to-earth terms, it's impossible to know with any certainty whether you will live or die tomorrow.
66.Two major factors contributed to devastating summer flooding along the Yangtze River and its tributaries. First, erosion resulting from excessive deforestation in the upper reaches of the river and, second,heavy silting which raised the riverbed in the main channel.

73.The explanation for the phenomenon of the rising teenage suicide rate involves many complicated factors. Some attribute the rise to an overemphasis on early success, others point to mounting peer pressure, and still others to confusion over changing social values.
