Read the passage below and answer the question.
"Wu Meng
the Jin dynasty 
was eight years old and served his parents with extreme filiality. The family
 was poor, and their bed had no mosquito net. Every
 night in summer many mosquitoes bit him, gorging
 on his blood. But despite their numbers he did not drive them away, fearing that they
 would go and bite his parents. This is the extreme of 
love for parents."
Selection from The Twenty‑four Exemplars 
of Filial 
Piety, c. 1260–1368 C.E.
