Part 1. Read the passage and choose the best option (A, B, C or D) to complete each of the following sentences.

Compact discs (CD’s) have revolutionized the music industry with their surprisingly realistic sound. The six-inch discs look like thin plastic sandwiches with aluminum in the center. They have digitally recorded material that is read by laser beams, so the sound has none of the crackling of the vinyl records. CD’s are also virtually indestructible, and they are lighter and smaller than conventional records (LP’s). CD’s are becoming more widely available than LP’s. They are now sold in electronics and video stores that haven’t formerly carried records or cassettes. Many record stores are now cutting their prices on LP’s to make room for the new CD’s. There has been a phenomenal growth in the sale of CD’s. Sales were up to 150 percent in the first half of 2015 as compared to the first half of 2014. Although fewer than 8 million CD’s were sold in 2013, there were approximately 60 million sold in 2015. It is likely that the sales would have been even higher were it not for the price. CD’s cost nearly twice as much as LP’s in the near future; however, prices should lower as more production facilities open.
