    1.There are researchers have found that optimists are more likely to succeed in life than pessimists, their direct opposites.
    2. In the United States in the 1990, more than two-thirds of new jobs were temporary positions and these temporary workers make up more than 25 percent of the work force.
    3. The stretch marks a woman gets after childbirth would not be there if she does not bring a new life into being.

    2. per cent should be two words.
