  EXAMPLE

  When ^ art museum wants a new exhibit,

  (1) an

  it (never/) buys things in finished form and hangs

  (2) never

  them on the wall. When a natural history museum

  wants an exhibition, it must often build it.

  (3)exhibit

  The German poet and polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

  pondered the question of how organisms develop in his scientific

  studies of form and structure immature plants and animals, a field he

  found and named morphology. His search for a single basic body plan

  (26)

  across all life-forms led him to think about the prevalence of repeating

  (27)

  segments in body structures. The spinal columns of fish, reptiles,

  (28)

  birds and mammals, for instance, all are made of long strings of

  (29)

  repeated vertebrae. Among invertebrates the growth of virtually

  identical segments is how striking: in earthworms, for example, even

  (30)

  internal organs are repeated in serial segments. Likewise, the

  abdomen of flies and other insects are segmented, as are the

  (31)

  successive wormlike articulations in crabs, shrimps and other

  crustaceans. To Goethe the evidence suggested that nature takes a

  building-block approach to generate life, repeating a basic element

  (32)

  again and again to arrive at a complicated organism. The only glaring

  (33)

  hole he could see in the theory was the apparent lack of sort of

  (34)

  segmentation in the vertebrate heads. In 1790 he hypothesized that

  (35)

  spinal vertebrate is modified during the development to form the skull.
