Questions 169-172 refer to the following book review.
From Coins to Credit: Banking Throughout the Ages is a concise history of banks and the banking industry from ancient times to the present. James Gallagher, who has made a career of covering financial news for several newspapers, has done a careful job of investigating his subject. Although he presents the facts carefully, Mr. Gallagher has made what could have been a dry book into one that is interesting and enjoyable. By telling amusing anecdotes about historical figures, he makes them come alive. Even people who are not particularly attracted to the subject matter will find this book engrossing.

MUMBAI, India, June 3 — Star Airways, Mumbai’s dominant airline for the past five years, has reported it is planning to replace its entire aircraft fleet with European- produced Skystream jets.

Starting with an initial purchase of 90 jets, Star Airways expects the changeover to take a decade to complete. The new planes will enable the airline to expand its international routes as well as provide replacements for its aging fleet of jet planes. Star Airways and Skystream, in a joint announcement at the Brussels Air Show on Thursday, said that the order included seventeen of the new AWB850 aircraft. This will make Star Airways the first Indian carrier to fly the AWB850, an aim it has had since the powerful jets were first produced.

Questions 176-180 refer to the following article.
Plans Approved for Local AttractionTuesday, February 26After hearing recommendations proposed by the panel commissioned eight months ago to evaluate the Marsh Point Lighthouse, local officials announced on Monday that a major restoration of the lighthouse tower would begin in two months. To the untrained eye, the lighthouse appears to be in good shape. However, according to chief engineer Edward Sayer, the tower is in dire need of repair to replace loose bricks and address severe corrosion at the base of the structure. President of the Marsh Point Historical Society Glenda Lewis remarks, “For almost 200 years, the lighthouse has been an aid to navigation. Restoring the lighthouse now may extend its service for another two centuries.”

The lighthouse is also important for cultural reasons. As Stephanie Landsbury of the city tourist board notes, “The Marsh Point Lighthouse is a local landmark. It has been featured on posters and signs and even plays a pivotal role in the movie classic “Clear Beam of Light.”
Restoration of the structure will be done in phases over the next eighteen months, and will include work on the interior as well as the exterior of the lighthouse.

Parts of the structure will remain open to the public while the work is being done, as will the museum and gift shop also on the premises. The completion of the project is expected to coincide with the building’s bicentennial. Donations to help support the cost of the restoration are being solicited from local individuals and corporate sponsors.
