Yes, A is right. I teach Mandarin reading lessons. The word “swim” is 游泳 in Chinese. In my Mandarin reading lessons, you will learn more Chinese terms for different sports. You’re welcome to join my Mandarin reading lessons.

I think it should be A. I’ve learned to read Mandarin with my Chinese friend. He told me it’s “yóuyǒng.”

I think C is right. It is cool to surf when it’s very hot. Isn’t it?
