a) Many people find their work rather boring (bore) but I get a lot of satisfaction (satisfy) from my job.

Familiarity (familiar) is boring and people soon get fed up with an ad/advertisement (advertise) they have seen many times before. Unconsciously (conscious) they want to be shocked. Apart from originality (original), the other really important characteristic (character) of a good campaign is memorability (memorable). After all if people don’t remember what was being advertised, they won’t buy the product (produce).
b) In my family we don’t worry about fitness (fit). I suppose you could say I’m rather unhealthy (health). I only eat junk food and I never do any exercise. I’m not very energetic (energy) and I’m completely useless (use) at sports. My two sisters are not unsimilar (similar) to me when it comes to leading active lives. Neither of them has played any kind of sport since childhood (child). What they lack in sporting ability, they make up for in intelligence (intelligent). They are two of the cleverest (clever) people I know. One of them works as a research scientist (science) and the other designs electronic equipment like calculators (calculate) and mobile phones. They have both done extremely well in what are very competitive (compete) professions.
