Read the following text from which five sentences have been removed. Choose from the sentences A-G the most suitable one to fill each numbered gap in the text (41-45). There are TWO extra sentences that you do not need to use. Mark your answers on your ANSWER SHEET.
    In 2009, the number of hungry people in the world reached one billion for the first time.

    The UN estimates that almost two thirds of the world's hungry people are in Asia, which is of course the world' s most populous continent.42____ Although this region has a much lower population than Asia, it has the highest percentage of hungry people. Almost all of the rest are in Latin America, North Africa and the Caribbean, In the richest regions of the world there are only a tiny number of people who don' t have enough to eat.
    There are many reasons for world hunger. They include wars, droughts, floods, and the over- use of fanning land.43____Many people also blame greedy businessmen for pushing up the prices of basic foods in the global market. But the most important reason, quite simply, is poverty, which has increased recently due to the financial crisis of 2008.
    Although many people make the obvious point that there would be less hunger if the global population were smaller, few people would argue that there is not enough food to go around. 44____ In the last 50 years, global food production has risen even more quickly than the global population. There are many areas of the world in which people generally have more than enough food.45____The answer to world hunger, therefore, may be a balanced food distribution around the whole world.
