Adam is assigned to work on a group project in Principles of Marketing with Mei Ling, a Chinese international student in his class. Adam has never spoken to Mei Ling before although he assumes that she would be very quiet and reserved like other Asian students and that her English would not be very good. Adam also thought that Mei Ling probably still lives at home with her parents and when she is at the university she is always studying diligently at the library. Adam has heard that Asian students are very studious, hard-working, and most are good at math and science.

2.He thinks that Mei Ling spends most of her time with her Asian friends and does not seem to make much effort to get to know Australians.

3.that she would be very quiet and reserved like other Asian students and that her English would not be very good

Yes you are saying right... here we can say a person who like to his nation, culture or special specific group..... 

Friends I have given reply of whole Q1, plz is ko apnay alfaz mai likhna....so that sub ka answer aik na ho

Q1 C

The stereotype that Mei Ling lives at home with her parents therefore may not be the case if she is an international student. She may live alone or with relatives or live in shared accommodation with other students.

Q1D

Our stereotype of Mei Ling also suggests that she is hardworking and studious. While this may the case, it is important to recognise that most university students do have to spend a considerable amount of studying. Asian students are not necessarily more studious than any other students although it may take some international students more time to study than their Australian classmates given that English is not their first language. Noi (1990) further points out that international students are full-fee paying students, and therefore, often feel enormous pressure and obligation to their parents and families to do well in their studies. The financial aspects as well as the high cultural expectation placed on educational success are often reasons why some Asian students spend more time at their books or even choose to study subjects, such as math or science, which their parents may deem suitable
