    Read the article below ("Can Violent Movies be Dangerous" and choose the correct answer for questions 11-15.  There is only 1 correct answer.  Can Violent Movies Be Dangerous? Before the 1960s, most movies did not show much graphic violence. When fighting or shooting occurred on the screen, it was clean: Bang! You’re dead! The victim fell to the ground and died, perhaps after speaking a few final words. The viewer never saw blood or suffering. But in the late ’60s, filmmakers Arthur Penn and Sam Peckinpah began making movies with more graphic violence, such as Bonnie and Clyde and The Wild Bunch. They believed that if audiences could see how truly horrible real violence was, people would be less violent in their own lives. Today, special effects technology has made it possible to create very realistic images of bloodshed and violence. Steven Prince, author of Savage Cinema: Sam Peckinpah and the Rise of Ultraviolent Movies, describes the difference between early movies and the movies of today “. . . filmmakers can create any image that they can dream up.” So, Prince believes, because of the technology, movies today have become more and more violent and bloody. Some people are worried that viewing a lot of violence in movies and video games can be dangerous. They feel that it can make violence seem normal and can cause people to imitate the violent behavior, to do the same thing themselves. Other people disagree. They believe that showing violence is honest and can even be helpful.  One popular filmmaker asks why violent images on the screen are a problem since we live in such a violent world. “Just open any newspaper,” he says. “Any newspaper is much more violent. And those are true stories about what happens in real life.” ■

    The article below ("Hong Kong Tailors") and choose the correct answer for questions 16-20. There is only 1 correct answer. Hong Kong Tailors The famous Hong Kong 24-hour suit is a thing of the past, but you can still have clothes custom-made in a few days. Today, prices are no longer as low as they once were, but they’re often about what you’d pay for a ready-made garment back home; the difference, of course, is that a tailor-made garment should fit you perfectly. The workmanship and quality of the better established shops rival even those of London’s Savile Row—at less than half the price. A top-quality men’s suit will run about HK$7,000 (US$910) or more, including fabric, while a silk shirt can cost HK$600 (US$78).
    1. Tailors in Hong Kong will make almost any garment you want—suits, evening gowns, wedding dresses, leather jackets, even monogrammed shirts. Many tailors offer a wide range of cloth from which to choose, from cotton and linen to very fine wools, cashmere, and silk. Hong Kong tailors are excellent at copying fashions. Bring a picture or drawing of what you want. You should allow three to five days to have a garment custom-made, with at least two or three fittings. If you aren’t satisfied during the fittings, speak up. Alterations should be included in the original price. If, in the end, you still don’t like the finished product, you don’t have to accept it. However, you will forfeit the deposit you are required to pay before the tailor begins working, usually about fifty percent of the total cost.
    2.  
    3. With more than 2,500 tailoring establishments in Hong Kong, it shouldn’t be any problem finding one. Some of the most famous are located in hotel shopping arcades and shopping complexes, but the more upscale the location, the higher the prices.
    4. Once you’ve had something custom-made and your tailor has your measurements, you will more than likely be able to order additional clothing later, even after you’ve returned home! ■
