Questions 23-28 are based on the following text.
Should Americans be Forced to Public Transportation?
By Jack Davis
First , let me define what the question is and isnt asking. It isnt asking if we should
we all abandon cars right now, nor is it asking if we should abandon them complety, nor is it
asking if every American should do so. It is asking wheater some Americans should have to take
public transit some of the time, and I would say yes.
Oil use and pollution aside, in some cities like Los Angeles and New York there just
isnt room for any more roads, so in order for large cities to grow, they need more people to take
public transit or risk permanent traffic jam. One bus can safely hold 40 people so even at half
capacity thats nearly 20 cars worth of space in traffic cleared up, and nearly 20 parking spaces
that dont need to built.
There are a lot of people that can take with transit little inconvenience but simply
dont because they never have in the past. If residents in areas with plenty of transit had to buy
transit passes as part of their property taxes then they would have little excuse not to bus
occasionally. QA number of universities already bundle a U-Pass with their tuition feeds,
forcing their students to take the bus. When given the change the majority of those students have
voted to keep these programs.
A similar system in apartments where a portion of the tenants are not issued parking
spaces in exchange for a discount on their rent would also be community car to several apartment
tenants that arrange a schedule for the car, and this program gets many positive reviews.
So yes, I would say that Americans should be forced to use public transit, as
Americans whom are already forced to do so find that it works well for them.

convey this?. The Lion was shocked to hear such words. He said, My dear Friend, what are
you saying? I dont any problem with you or your friendship. He assured the Jackal that he had
no such ill-feelings for the friendship between them.
The Lion also assured for that he would talk to talk to the lioness and solve the whole
matter. The jackal was intelligent and understood the situation. He said to the lion, I know you
are sincere, but our families could not exactly respond the same level of the friendship. So, let us
stay apart and meet often as friends. We could also hunt together. It would be better, if our
families stay apart. The lion agreed to the proposal with a heavy heart.
