Spectacular Bridge Created with Super Cranes
By Marcia Brunon
Five years ago, the town of Stonewell, situated at the foot of the Marshall Mountains, decided to ﬁnance the building of a bridge across the Stonewell River. It was planned as a much—needed northern route for the town. —  —. The efﬁciency of the project was directly attributable to two RWC451 cranes, manufactured by Ronsonworks, a company based in England.
The two identical lower cranes were owned by the construction ﬁrm Redding Builders. One crane was assembled at the south bank of the river, while the other one was placed on a concrete pylon in the center of the Stonewell River. —  —. The assembly of the second crane was particularly challenging, as it required the use of another crane on a ﬂoating barge.
“Any large project is going to require unforeseen adjustments that may disrupt an official construction schedule,” said Roger Lee, chief engineer of Redding Builders. —  —. In this case, the metal anchors that connected the bridge to the pylons were determined to be too small. The new anchors weighed 22 tons, which is within the safe lifting capacity of an RWC4Sl crane. —  —. Engineers reinforced the existing cranes for extra security, and the cranes performed well.
Today, this postcard—worthy bridge is the pride of Stonewell, featuring viewing platforms for pedestrians, hikers, and visitors at the base of each pier overlooking the mountainous valley. Construction materials and colors harmonize beautifully with the local environment. All design elements, including the piers, Viewing platforms, and railings, complement the natural landscape, making the bridge a hit with everyone from hikers to the truck drivers who now include it in their regular route.
172. What is mentioned about the cranes?
(A) They are owned by Ronsonworks.
(B) They were designed specifically for the Stonewell Bridge project.
(C) They were assembled on the Stonewell Bridge construction site.
(D) They weigh more than 22 tons.
173. What is indicated by Mr. Lee?
(A) His professional specialty is bridge construction.
(B) He believes that projects like the Stonewell Bridge always present problems.
(C) He delayed the Stonewell Bridge project for budgetary reasons.
(D) His ﬁrst project as a chief engineer was the Stonewell Bridge.
174. What is NOT suggested about the Stonewell Bridge?
(A) It provides a northward exit out of town.
(B) It was designed for both pedestrians and vehicles.
(C) It was designed to blend with the natural setting.
(D) It required more workers than first estimated.
175. In which of the positions marked , , , and  does the following sentence best belong?
“The project, which was expected to take four years, was completed in less than three."
Questions 176-180 refer to the following memo and schedule.

Kitchenware Utopia Food Processor—Model C3
You will never need to buy another food processor! Our best-selling model, the C3, is made of high—quality plastic and easy-to-clean stainless steel.
FEATURES The unique blade design and powerful motor make this a professional-grade appliance, ideal for busy restaurants of any size.
WARRANTY We include a seven—year warranty on all parts and labor—a reassurance to you that our food processor will last a long time.
Special purchase price: $319.00/KU Club Members: $299.00
Rating: **** *
Review: This product is amazing! I work as a caterer, and I’ve used a lot of different food processors. Kitchenware Utopia’s C3 is by far the best I’ve found. Its motor is very powerful, and the many different blades and settings make it extremely versatile. The settings are also straightforward. lt’s expensive but well worth the investment, and since l’m a loyalty club member, the price was reasonable. My only complaint would be that it’s very heavy and therefore not as portable as l’d hoped. Overall, though, I’m exceptionally satisfied with this product.
Posted by Eli Perles on March 27
We are very glad to hear you are happy with our C3 food processor. Customer satisfaction is our number one priority. We would like to respond to your complaint and provide a suggestion regarding your concerns. Our C2 processor might be better suited to your professional needs. The C2 offers the same motor size as the C3, but it is much smaller than the C3 in general. However, this model does cost slightly more than the C3.

Ment Hall to Host Piasek Cup Final
Ment Hall, which is currently undergoing extensive renovation, will be ready to host the ﬁnal game of the Piasek Cup Volleyball Championship to be held in Warsaw this June. Although the project has been in the works for some time, it was the opportunity to host this Championship that provided the economic incentive to push the project to its completion. City ofﬁcials have conﬁrmed that the construction is progressing according to schedule and will be complete well before the ﬁnals of the Championship.
Since Ment Hall is the only major arena in the country that has never hosted a Piasek Cup event, the hall’s owners were proud to have been chosen to host this year’s ﬁnale. The ﬁnal game will inaugurate the refurbished hall. The event is expected to draw thousands of volleyball fans, and the organizers are conﬁdent that Ment Hall will live up to the occasion. Seating 19,000 spectators, Ment Hall will be double its previous size.
