You are going to read an article about what silence might mean.  Some words are missing from the text. Use the words in brackets to form the words that fit in the gaps (1-9). Then write the appropriate form of these words on the lines after the text.  There might be cases when you do not have to change the word in brackets. Use only one word for each gap. There is an example (0) at the beginning. 


Studies show that typically we leave just a fraction of a second between
taking turns to talk. But while this pattern may be (0) ____universal____ (universe), our perceptions
of silence differ (1)   (dramatic) across cultures.
Native English speakers tend to be most uncomfortable with long gaps in a discussion. And
yet, knowing when to be tight-lipped can give you the upper hand in everything from sales
deals and pay (2)   (negotiate) to presentations and staff development. Silence really
is golden.
Research conducted at the University of Groningen found that when a silence in
conversation stretched to four seconds, people started to feel (3)   (confuse). A
separate study of business meetings found that (4)   (Japan) people were happy with
silences of 8.2 seconds – (5)   (near) twice as long as in Americans’ meetings. The
Finns – who respect (6)   (private), reserve and the art of listening – are also happy
to sit in studied thoughtfulness.
The fact that English speakers generally dread silence is partly why it can be such a
(7)   (power) tool. Learning how to face silence is an (8)   (essence) skill,
says psychologist Matthew MacLachlan. “Chinese negotiators are very, very aware that
Americans like to fill silences and they are trained to stay silent and (9)   (emotion)
because that will make the Americans uncomfortable and possibly make concessions without
the Chinese having to do anything,” he says.
So, what’s the best response? “Grit your teeth and wait it out. Don’t offer a compromise or
concession just because they are not speaking.”

While most people’s tattoos have meanings behind them, one guy now has an inking more

Vinny had first met Brooke (21)   tattooing her in his studio – and so he decided to

Not wanting to give anything away, Vinny asked Brooke to come along to the studio to tattoo

incredibly nervous and was shaking at the thought of putting the needle to her partner’s leg. Her
hands became even more unstable when Vinny, (23)   she had been dating for a year
