From the first day that men began to study numbers in daily life, some numbers have been thought to be lucky, while others are considered unlucky. And it’s not just Western culture that has done this. Cultures in Japan, China, India, and Africa have done the same thing, but for different reasons. Let’s take a look at some commonly known lucky and unlucky numbers to see why they are loved or hated.
Everyone knows that “7” is lucky. But __85__? The root of most lucky
numbers can be found in religion. God, for example, is said to have created
the world in 7 days. Until the 1800s, there were seven known planets in the
solar system（太阳系）. Seven is even the usual number of spots on a ladybug
（瓢虫）and ladybugs are considered good luck themselves.
This number means bad luck in Asia. For example, the __86__ of “4” in
Chinese is very similar to the word “death.” And because of this, “4” has been considered bad luck in China.
“666” is an __87__ number. It is extremely bad luck in Western culture but very good luck in many Asian countries.
__88__ the Christian Bible（圣经）, the number 666 means Satan（撒旦，魔鬼）. It might be the most avoided number in Western culture. For example, there used to be US Highway 666 in New Mexico, but in 2003 it was changed to US Highway 491 because the government was afraid that the number would scare tourists away. Another example is that Ronald Reagan, 40th President
of the United States, changed the __89__ 666 St. Cloud Road, Bel Air to 668 St. Cloud Road, Bel 5
Air before moving in.
But in Asia, people love “666” because it __90__ “things going smoothly,” and is considered to be very lucky.
People all over the world don’t like “13.” It’s difficult for you to find a building with a 13th floor in North America. Friday the 13th is considered a very bad day.
In many Asian countries, “2” is good luck. It is thought that good things come in pairs, which is a phrase that __91__ appears in Western culture.
Maybe no people in the world are more fascinated about the number “8” than the Chinese. A recent report said that the phone number 8888-8888 was sold for over $200,000 in China.
85. A. when B. how C. why D. where
86. A. meaning B. pronunciation C. spelling D. writing
87. A. different B. boring C. difficult D. interesting
88. A. Because of B. According to C. Thanks to D. With the help of
89. A. address B. road C. phone number D. location
90. A. sounds like B. looks like C. feels like D. seems like
91. A. never B. still C. even D. only

You may have seen this happening in schools: some students might be studying almost all the time but they just scrape through（勉强通过）their exams, while some others may spend much l____92___ time on their books but do much better in exams.
How could this happen? Some people may blame the education
system, but this just shows the d____93___ between hard work and
People used to think that hard work is the o___94____ way to
success. But now they have understood that it is smart work that does
Hard workers don’t mind working for long hours, while smart
workers always think of various answers to these questions, “Why should I suffer this?” “Isn’t there a better way to do this?” But for these people, we would still be using the abacus (算盘); computers wouldn’t have been i____95____. Progress in every field is the direct result of the “Search for a better way” by smart workers.
There was a large soap factory in Japan. Once it received an unusual customer complaint---there was no soap in the soapbox he bought.
How could e___96____ soapboxes go out of the factory? The manufacturing was fine, but in about one in ten thousand cases the packing machine let go an empty soapbox. There was no need to spend a lot of money r___97____ the machine for such a minor defect（小缺点）.The chief engineer soon worked out a solution: he used a huge X-ray machine which was connected to two large computers to find out the empty soapboxes. After teaching the workers how to use it, he sat down in his seat, tired.
“Sir, we could have solved the problem in a much simpler and cheaper way,”
a worked said. 6
