correct answer to each of the questions from 41 to 45.
      A long and happy marriage is something that many people wish for, but finding the right partner is
much more difficult than you might imagine. A friend of mine, Susan, had not been very successful in her
attempt to find the perfect partner, and she was beginning to lose heart and feel rather depressed. One
day she happened to hear someone talking about a computer dating agency which could help you to find
the ideal partner. Susan immediately made an appointment to see someone at the agency, then wanted
to see what would happen. The agency arranged a meeting with a “suitable” partner at the local railway
station a week later, although I advised her not to go. My friend arrived a few minutes early but could see
noone who matched the appearance of the man in the photograph she had been sent. She noticed a
man waiting under the station clock and holding a bunch of flowers, but there was noone else around.
Suddenly the man started chatting to her and, after a while, he asked her if she would like to go and have
a coffee. Not until much later did they come to the conclusion that they had both waiting for each other!
When they had both recovered from the shock, they decided that the computer had been right after all!
