Recently the school Headmaster has proposed (1) (REMOVE) all the books from the library and replacing them with computers. At first, this might sound like a great way of (2) (MODERN) the school. If you ask me, however, I think we need to weigh up the pros and cons of this suggestion very (3) (CAREFUL) before taking action.

What’s more, it’s often much (5) (EASY) to search online for the exact information you need, rather than having to trawl through masses of books that are restricted to individual subjects.
