Onions and garlic

Once upon a time, there lived two brothers: Joshua and Eli. They dwelled on a humble farm, struggling with poverty. Joshua toiled tirelessly day after day, while Eli, burdened by indolence, shunned work.

One fateful day, Joshua heard tales 30                            a distant kingdom that had a peculiar scarcity – no onions! Pondering this intriguing revelation, Joshua came 31                            with an idea. "If I could sell them onions," he pondered, "they would surely pay a handsome sum." Determined, he sought an audience with the king and was granted his request.

Joshua contemplated for a moment and responded, "In 35                          , they have no garlic." Eli's mind churned with avaricious thoughts. "If I could sell them garlic," he mused, "I would be richer than my brother. After all, garlic surpasses onions in its tantalizing taste." Inspired by his covetous ambition, Eli embarked on the same journey as his brother.
