Insurance (保险) is the sharing of risks. Nearly everyone is exposed to risk of some sort. The house owner, for example, knows that his property can be damaged by fire; the ship-owner knows that his vessel may be lost at sea; the breadwinner knows that he may die at any early age and leave his family poorer. On the other hand, not every house is damaged by fire nor every vessel lost at sea. If these persons, each put a small sum into a pool, there will be enough to meet the needs of the few who do suffer loss. In other words, the losses of the few are met from the contributions of the many. This is the basis of insurance. Those who pay the contribution are known as insured and those who administer(管理) the pool of contributions as insurers.
The legal basis of all insurance is the policy. This is a printed form of contract on stout paper of the best quality. It states that in return for the regular payment by the insured of a named sum of money, called the premium(保险费) , which is usually paid every year, the insurer will pay a sum of money or compensation for loss, if the risk or event insured against actually happens. The premium for an insurance naturally depends upon how likely the risk is to happen, as suggested by past experience. If companies fix their premiums too nigh, there will be more to make the premium too low, they will lose money and may even have to drop out of business. So the ordinary forces of supply and demand keep premiums at a level satisfactory to both the insurer and the insured.

D cheap but not necessary
The United States is a democracy, which means that the citizens run the government. Since we can' t all make the rules, we elect representatives-our president, vice-president, senators, congressmen, governors, and others who make the laws and govern our country based on the beliefs of the people. These elected officials help pass laws that reflect the interests of their constituents, the people who live within the areas they represent.
Since the right to choose these representatives is in the hands of the people, it is very important that everyone in a community go to the polls to cast their ballots(投票) . If only a few people vote, then the elected representatives may not truly represent the interests of the full community.
Some day you may disagree with a decision made by your governor, state and federal(联邦的) representatives, or the president. The best way to make your opinion known is to go to the polls and elect new officials whom you believe will better represent you in the future. By not voting, you are in effect giving up your right to help make changes in our country.
During a presidential election, when millions of people exercise the right to vote, you might think that your single vote won' t make a difference. Remember, every vote counts. Even if the candidates you support aren' t elected, you' ve still had a hand in shaping the country' s future.
The United States is a democracy in that ______.
A the government is elected by the citizens
B the rules and laws are made by the people
C what the president does is under permission of all the citizens
D everyone has a right to make changes in its future

A the only way to make changes in the country is to vote
B to vote is in fact a right to play a part in the country
C even if the candidates you support aren' t elected, they' ve still lent you a hand
D a single vote makes no sense
The objective of this passage is to tell the people ______.
