Reasons arc not hard to find: a sense of community involving both actors and audience, and a rich, self-renewing tradition stretching back to Shakespeare. Company loyalty rather than cutthroat competition is intelligently underwritten by state subsidy. The theaters must fill a high percentage of scats to justify their government grants.

The exquisite accuracy of lasers is being increasingly harnessed by medicine. Lasers lend themselves to medical applications because they can produce immensely compact and energy-packed beams of coherent light. Compactness confers accuracy and energy confers the power to cut through tissue like a scalpel.

Still, in cases where other therapies are too imprecise, a laser is worth the expense.

(A) compactness and heat

(B) accuracy and power

(C) widespread availability

(D) ability to diffuse light
