The rules require when the two meet, one will pass along the bridge and the other will get off the bridge. But at this year's preliminary contest, a pair of students clasped each other when meeting in the middle of the bridge before they turned around and so the two both managed to pass the bridge. The referee believes the act is controversial. Please write an article according to this story.

The National Standardized Exam Paper II shared by provinces and regions including Inner Mongolia, Guizhou and Tibet:
