1. What do you think the result of the recent survey done by China Youth Daily implies? 
  The result of the survey implies that China's young people don't see living alone as negative. Instead, they enjoy solitude.  2. Do you agree with the idea that living alone means becoming lonely?
  I don't agree. Being alone does not necessarily mean you are lonely, as long as one can make full use of their time–reading, working out or doing anything that benefits himself/herself.  3. What is the writer's opinion on this issue?
  Living alone doesn't mean you have to feel lonely–in fact, it can be beneficial.  4. How does the writer support her idea?
  She uses her own experience to support her point of view.  5. How did the writer find friends with similar hobbies while living alone in Beijing?
  She used social media. She cooked and shared the dishes on her WeChat Moments, which allowed her to interact with friends.  6. Why does the writer want to enjoy solitude?
  Because that way she can put herself first. She can live her life freely and comfortably, without accepting something that she doesn't really want.  7. How can one be alone without feeling lonely according to the writer?
  One has to accept oneself as good company.  8. How do you understand the quote in the last paragraph?   People tend to yield easily to generally accepted views. Standing up for one's ideas and living one's life in one's own way takes great courage.
