I am not sure who presented this passage for you to choose vocabulary but I need to point out that the grammar between the blanks is poor. There are a lot of mistakes in the beginning of the passage. 58. regular 59. figure 60. improve 61. encourage 62. pay 63. commence OR introduce 64. crowded 65. difficult 66. existing 67. greatest 68. aim 69. between 70. means 71. travel 72. losing
