Word formation, 1

For Questions 56-65, read the text below. Use the word given in capitals at the end of each line to
form a word that fits in the space in the same line. There is an example at the beginning (0).


Computers have had the (0) ..ability…(ABLE) to play chess for many years now, and  their (56) ….. (PERFORM) in games against the best players in the world has shown
steady (57) …..(IMPROVE) . However, it will be years before the designers of computer games machines can beat their (58) …..(BIG) challenge yet – the ancient board game called Go.

    I do not leave many comments, however i did a few searching
    and wound up here Word formation, 1 | FCE Practice. And I actually do have some
    questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of these responses appear as if they are written by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing on other places, I would like to keep up with
    everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of all your public pages like your linkedin
    profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
    seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening
    to read?

    Would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near
    future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique.
    P.S. My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    We’re a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in
    our community. Your website provided us with
    useful info to work on. You have performed an
    impressive activity and our whole community might be thankful to you.
