Today, supermarkets are found in almost every large city in the world. But the first supermarket was opened only fifty years ago. It was opened in New York by a man named Michael Cullen.
A Supermarket is different from other types of stores in several ways. In supermarkets, goods are placed on open shelves. The customers choose what they want and take them to the check-out counter(付款台).This means that fewer employees are required than in other stores.
The way products are displayed(陈列) is another difference between supermarkets and many other types of stores. For example, in supermarkets, there is usually a display of small inexpensive items just in trout of the check-out counter: candies, chocolates, magazines, cheap books and so on. Why are they there?
Most customers who go to a supermarket buy from a shopping list. They know exactly what they need to buy. They shop according to a plan. By the time they reach the check-out counter, the customers are feeling pleased and relaxed because the task of shopping is finished. In this happy mood, the customers see an attractive display of inexpensive goods that were not on their shopping Lists. Now they feel like buying something just for their own pleasure and enjoyment. Many customers buy from these displays of products near the check-out counter, and this is exactly what the owner of the supermarket hopes they will do.
Another important fact in helping a customer choose what to buy is where a product is placed on a shelf. A product that is placed at eye level on a shelf sells much better than one which is placed on a lower or higher shelf. A product which is easy to see sells best. Manufacturers pay a higher price to have their products placed at eye level on the shelves.
The comfort and convenience of shopping centers is another factor which makes them popular with customers. Large parking spaces are provided, and many supermarkets stay open until very late at night.

A. Supermarkets need more clerks than other stores.
B. In supermarkets goods are placed on closed shelves.
C. The customers prefer supermarkets to other kinds of stores.
D. The customers pay any clerk they meet for what they have bought in supermarkets.

How men first learned to invent words is unknown; in other words, the origin of language is a mystery. All we really know is that men, unlike animals, somehow invented certain sounds to express thoughts and feelings, actions and things, so that they could communicate with each other, and later they agreed upon certain signs called letters, which would be combined to represent those sounds and which could be written down. Those sounds, whether spoken or written in letters, are called words.
The power of words, then, lies in their associations——the things they bring up before our minds. Words become filled with meaning for us by experience; and the longer we live, the more certain words remind us of the glad and sad events of our past; and the more we read and learn, the more the number of words that mean something to us increases.
Great writers are those who not only have great thoughts but also express these thoughts in words which appeal powerfully to our minds and emotions. This charming use of words is what we call literary style.Above all, a real poet is a master of words. He can convey his meaning in words which sing like music, and which by their position and association can move men to tears. We should, therefore, learn to choose our words carefully and use them accurately, or they will make our speech silly and vulgar.

A. they could communicate with each other B. they could agree on certain sings

A. properties B. peculiarity C. characteristics D. representative function
