words. In the sentence, The video producer and the singer selected an inter-
location for the shoot, the conjunction and connects the two nouns
producer and singer. Similarly, in the sentence, You can swim or jog during

first letter of each conjunction is used.
Giant mango theft is PR stuns
A giant ten metre high mango model owned by the tourist board of Australian town Bowen has disappeared in what appears to be a publicity stunt.The story goes that tourist attraction, built in 2002 to promote Bowens status as a mango growing district, was discovered missing on Monday morning and that CCTV footage showed a suspicious looking truck arriving at the site. However, the speed and effectiveness of the publicity campaign to retrieve the mango, led by Sydney marketing firm Banjo Advertising, has led many to believe it is all a publicity stunt.
