    Reading Passage
    Beth wanted to earn the PRIVILEGE of buying a COLLEGIATE sweater that came with a CERTIFICATE. To JUSTIFY the expense, she asked the clerk to make an ADJUSTMENT in the price because of a small defect. Since this request was somewhat ILLEGAL, the transaction was completed in SECRECY. In the same store, Beth read about a CONCERTO that would be performed in the Music Dept. Another article stated that an INJURY had occurred to a JUROR near the LEGISLATURE. Since neither information was of real CONCERN to her, she returned to the dorm, happy to have her sweater!.
