PASSAGE A

For the working woman, the task of looking after the home and __76__ up to the children is not easy. Although the house may have every modern __77__, there is still much __78__ to keep her __79__ cooking, cleaning, mending, washing and ironing. If she is lucky to have a __80__ help, her task is made somehow easier.

The working woman spends much of her income on beauty care. She buys a lot of __81__ and visits __82__regularly. Most women are so occupied with the daily __83__ that they need these things to __84__ themselves up.

Thus, the responsibilities of a __85__ are quite demanding and she could be so busy as to have little time for __86__ engagements.

PASSAGE B

For fixed fees, insurance companies will help a firm insure against __87__ and provide some __88__. Most firms will seek __89__ against fire, fraud and other __90__ happenings for which they pay annual __91__ to the insurance companies. The payments will vary according to the __92__ to be __93__. Some of these happenings may be __94__ sustained during work or __95__ business debts.

A __96__ number is given to the insured for proper __97__. If you have just bought a new car, it is advisable to undertake a __98__ policy than a __99__, for more risk covered in the former than in the __100__.
