Questions 41 - 50 Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. 

Nothing captures our attention quite like a good story. Long before there were television, movies, radio, and even books, people told stories as a way to entertain and educate. Storytelling was as important to prehistoric cave-dwellers eating antelope around a fire as it is to corporate executives doing lunch. It’s in our human blood. We love the development of plot and character, the climax, the resolution, the vicarious thrill of living and learning through tales of others sufferings and triumphs. All of literature and media is but an extension of the more basic urge to tell a good story. The advantage of storytelling, though, is that you do it in person - right there, right in front of people, so you get to see, hear and feel their reactions. Unlike books and television, storytelling is much more interactive and personal. You don’t do it alone, unless you’re quite psychotic .......... but that’s another story. Without a doubt, stories capture all sorts of truths about life and death. There are also witty, entertaining, humorous, and at times puzzling, even mind-bending stories. The ancient teachers intended the stories to be used by everyone, everywhere. On the train to work, during dinner at a restaurant, leaning over the backyard fence as you talk to your neighbour - all of these situations and more lend themselves to the stories. Once you listen to and learn a few of them, you will see opportunities to tell them popping up everywhere with your family, friends, and co-workers. Think of the tales as conversation pieces, as handy tools that you can lift out of your pocket to help you and others talk, think and laugh about the wondrous and mysterious details of this thing we call Life.
