The awesome part of having YTC (Youth Travel Card --> no. 6) is every places we want to travel will be discounted 15-30 %. *whew...superb!*
Leaflet no. 3 titled "Youth Travel in Taiwan; Let's be friends" is filled with youth travel information services, like TR Pass + Taipei Pass and Budget Accommodation. I will type down some important information written in this leaflet :
For young international youths between the ages of 15-30, all you need is your passport and either an International Student Identity Card to purchase a TR Pass (Taiwan Rail Pass). You can buy 5-day (NT$599), 7-day (NT$799), and 10-day (NT$1098) passes which allow you to ride the Chukuang, Fuhsing, the Electric, or the Ordinary train an unlimited amount of times within the allotted time period.

Leaflet no. 4 titled "Let's be friends" is merely remind the young travelers about the advantages of having YTC and buying TR Passes.
Brochure no. 5 titled "Let's be friends; the 12 reasons for the int'l youth travelers to visit Taiwan" is just like its title, selling some prominent points which are believed to be owned by this country. They are : English spoken, friendly people, geographical variety, various activities, excellent food, convenient transportation, inexpensive accommodation, learning Mandarin, cultural heritage, democratic and freedom, technologically advanced environment, and finally...diversity. *hmmm...sounds very "tempting"...advertisement-typical language ;p*
Leaflet no. 8 is....ALL CHINESE writing...*ROFL*. Just about the same with the previous brochures and leaflets^^.
Oh..and no. 7 is a postcard, btw. I should've asked more...i love postcard ;p.
Well, i hope that the information i've provided here is useful to anyone who loves traveling. All in all, let's TRAVEL all around Taiwan...*while your YTC is still valid...xixixi...^^V*
