  1. The trendy crimson1tinted eyeglasses had given Josh some aloof and sophisticated air.

He is so caught upin2 his __________________ lifestyle that he seems to have forgotten living in similar wretched3 conditions. • Alice saw her name __________________ in the golden rim4 of a diamond wedding ring soon after she had heard those long awaited words “Will you marry me?” Then, she felt her knees shake and her heart skip a beat.

Soon, the stairs got cram packed with shoppers. COUNTERS AISLE ESCALATOR • Almost • Almost • Big, comprehensive

  6.
