Paraphrasing: Read the following passage and answer questions 71 to 75:

       Dr. Johnson described sleep as a ‘gentle tyrant’. ‘Sleep’ is a tyrant because nobody can escape its regimen; ‘gentle’ because there is some flexibility …of course, within limits … in the distribution of the hours of sleeping and being awake. We go to sleep way 15 to 16 hours; and sleep for about 8 hours in a 24 hours cycle. The outer limit for keeping sleep at bay for the average individual is 72 hours.
