Explanation: Q1 - For finding out who is the narrator, we have to observe that the whole story is told using "I", and we find out that the "I" is Jadyn in paragraph 4, when he introduces himself to the new neighbors.

Q2 - They are probably going to be best friends because they share the same interests and they also have the same personality, which is to be curious and outgoing, since they like talking a lot and to ask questions about each other's culture.

Q3 - The sadness behind the word "adjustment" is noticed because it relates to find something difficult to deal with according to He-Ping's point of view, since this is a new culture for him in a totally different place from the one he has used to.

Q4 - The pictures seen in the boxes were Chinese handwriting, and one can infer that Jadyn doesn't get what it is only if one knows Chinese culture. Since Michael probably doesn't, that's why he has the same feeling as Jadyn.

Q5 - The story tells us about an American boy that become friends with a Chinese boy that has just moved to the neighborhood. Since American and Chinese culture are very different, the topic is about meeting someone different from you.

A phrase from the passage which most likely helped Micah make his inference is “fate goes ever as fate must.” This phrase is a good conclusion for Micah, that Beowulf is not afraid of his fate, whatever happens, he will accept it.


The story of Beowulf  

Focuses on how the character Beowulf, as a hero of the Geats, comes to help the king of the Danes, Hrothgar. The king of the Danes' great hall is plagued by Grendel who is considered as a monster. Thus, Beowulf comes to help to defeat Grendel. Beowulf, with his bare-hand, beats Grendel. He also beats Grendel’s mother with the giant’s sword. After that, Beowulf becomes the king of the Geats.  

The passage above shows that Beowulf has a warrior spirit. He calmly assumed what might have happened if Grendel won a fight with him. From here, readers would know that Beowulf is ready with all the risks that might befall him. But Beowulf did not necessarily give up before competing, instead confirmed himself with the phrase: "fate goes ever as fate must".

"Beowulf" is Anglo-Saxon epic poem that tells story about Beowulf and his adventures.

Here, we see that Beowulf accepts his faith if he is loses in a fight. He is aware of the consequences; je is ready to fight, but he is in peace with whatever outcome may be. What needs to happen will happen and he's prepared for that.

Fate goes ever as fate must.

Micah infers that Beowulf does not fear death. In the passage, Beowulf is heading off into battle and says "Fate goes ever as fate must." This shows that Beowulf believes his death has already been determined by fate. If he is to die in this battle, it was meant to be. It alleviates his fear of death since it is not something he can control or prevent.

I believe the correct answer is: Fate goes ever as fate must.

This conclusion is reached on the basis of the sentence: “Fate goes ever as fate must”, which shows that Beowulf doesn’t fear his fate, he accepted it, and therefore, doesn’t fear his death.
