Even the more (27) clubs are still seeing sales growth, along with rising retention (28) of more than 70 per cent. This can be seen as clear (29) of the appeal of Fine Fitness.
Ms Collier admitted that as there were (30) too many companies competing with one another; there would almost certainly be (31) in the health-and-fitness-club sector of the market She predicted that, within a relatively short time, there might be only about three major companies still in (32).However, she declined to say which these were likely to be.
Profits rose by £6.3 million, although there was a fall in gross margins from 31 per cent to 28.6 per cent because of higher insurance premiums, extra management costs and start-up expenses for the company's new (33) in Spain.

19題，一句話包含三個空，聯系在一起做。昨天開會，宣布了一系列結果。報告稅前收益增長了38%，公司并沒有經歷它的競爭對手所暴露的問題。19題選report，20題experienced，21題，revealed by its rival，被競爭對手暴露的問題。
22題，remains strong保持強勁;單看單詞的意思，貌似keep也可以(不過說實話，如果不是有同學提醒，我壓根想不到會填keep)聯系此句上下文，提到了在對手出現問題時這個公司表現依然強勁remain在英文詞典的解釋是：continue to exist, especially after other similar or related people or things have ceased to exist 在相似或者相關人和事出現狀況時仍然存在，所以，remain更符合這個題目的條件
23題，on track 步入正軌。公司正在實現目標的正道上。這個詞在其他完型也出現過，不過不是正確答案。
25題，bring to，使總數達到51，這個題怕是要靠語感。put肯定不對，get to到達，mount在這里用法不對。
26題，proved to be證明是，固定用法
27題，這里填入的詞要和前文對照，前面說新開了12家新的俱樂部，這里的空格前有個even和more，所以應該是填入與new相對應的詞。established是已確立的(If you use established to describe something such as an organization, you mean that it is officially recognized or generally approved of because it has existed for a long time. )
28題，retention rate保留率，專有名詞(Retained earnings divided by total after-tax earnings, expressed as a percentage)，指公司稅后收益所保留的那一部分。
31題，consolidation強化、合并(To consolidate a number of small groups or firms means to make them into one large organization.)，有很多的公司相互競爭，所以需要進行一個整合。這是商英里的固定說法。
