- iv) The new plant matures more quickly.
- v) A large number of desired varieties of plant are produced in very short time.
- i) No new varieties are produced.
- ii) Over crowding causes severe competition for survival among them.

According to the teachers, the “first flight” went well. After a couple of months of using e-books, many students began to show a greater interest in reading, and those who previously liked to read were able to access a decent number of new books. For all the time, only 2 readers were out of order, but they have already been replaced. And this is not an isolated case. Edwards-Knox Central School, NY, will be teaching English this year using Amazon Kindle e-books. And the decision to buy readers came very simple. The new English program had such a large list of literature that it would have cost tens of thousands of dollars to purchase it.
