China should not be the universal language due to the following reasons:
1st- It is difficult to understand. We need to study about the stress and any other things that Mandarin has. It has lots of words that have the same spelling but different pronunciations. So we'll find it difficult.
2nd- It has difficult alphabet- As we all know that Mandarin has difficult alphabet and it is not easy for us to understand.

Rebuttals

1. Difficult to understand

Chinese is not difficult to understand. Chinese might be easy to understand by Chinese people. They think that English is hard.

2. Different Alphabet

Again, for the Chinese, it is not hard, and English is hard for them.

Thank you.
