  Quesaons 61 to 65 are based on thefollowingpassage.

  In 2005,the medical examiner in Wichita,Kansas,noticed a cluster of deaths that were unusually similar in nature:in three years,sixteen men and women,between the ages of twenty-two and fifty-two,had died in their sleep.In the hours before they lost consciousness,they had been sluggish and dopey,struggling to stay awake.A few had complained of chest pain.“I can’t catch my breath,”one kept saying.

  On September 13,2005,Schneider arrived at work to find the clinic cordoned(包围隔离)off with police tape.He called his wife,Linda Atterbury,a blond,peppy forty-seven-year-old nurse,who was at home with their two young daughters,and told her to come to work.Agents from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration led Schneider into one of the clinic’s fourteen exam rooms and asked him why he had been prescribing so many opioid(鸦片类)painkillers.He responded that sixty per cent of his patients suffered from chronic pain,and few other physicians in the area would treat them.The agents wrote.“He tries to believe his patients whenthey describe their health problems and he will believe them until they prove themselves wrong.”When asked how many of his patients had died,Schneider said that he didn’t know…
