    Reading Passage:
    As a boy, Clay suffered from VERTIGO and lived in a abandoned trailer with his DESTITUTE mother. As a result, he had a PERVERSE sense of humor. He enjoyed SPECIOUS fibs and playing DESPICABLE pranks on his friends. Even after they complained, he was OBSTINATE and dismissed their AVERSION to his unrepentant behavior. Some time later, recognizing that the CONSTITUENTS of his personality were negative, Clay completely changed. With ECSTASY, the same friends praised him because he had even become an EXTROVERT. It was also AUSPICIOUS that he had become very CIRCUMSPECT. His attitude adjustment allowed him to avoid prison.
