In China, the full name of a Han Chinese person (Han is the largest ethnic group in China) is composed of two parts: the surname and the given name. In Chinese, the surname comes first and is then followed by the given name. So you can see Chinese names are completely opposite to English names, For example, if you have a friend named 李小明，you may call him “Xiaoming Li” in English, but in Chinese, you should refer to him as “Lǐ Xiǎomíng,” Li being his surname.
In our test, 张(Zhāng) is the woman’s surname and her given name is 小梅(Xiǎoméi), so the correct answer is A.
