VI. Choose the correct word.
I. It’s nearly impossible to find the man in the exhibition hall. You should make (an advertisement, an announcement, a notice) that Mr Smirnov is wanted in the office. 2. I don’t think we should go beyond this (announcement, advertisement, notice). Don’t you see it says “private”? 3. “Don’t be discour aged about the dog,” Jane said to her aunt. “If you place (an announcement, an advertisement, a notice) in the newspaper I’m sure you’ll get him back soon." 4. The new manager of the shop understood that he must pay special attention to (announcing, advertising). “The goods won’t sell unless they are (to advertise, to announce) properly," he thought. 5. There’s a lot of time yet and you needn’t worry about anything. Just sit there and wait till the time of departure is (to advertise, to announce). 6. “There’s no need to worry about getting tickets now," said Ann. “I’ve just heard (an advertisement, an an nouncement) that the singer doesn’t arrive until next week.”
