What was so terrible (“most terrible”!) about his life and why?

Assignement 1
After reading Tolstoy’s short story “The Death of Ivan Ilyich” answer the following questions. Make sure to reference specific examples from the text (using quotes with page numbers would be the most effective). – minimum 15 sentences (total).
The short story: https://archive.org/details/deathofivanilyic0000tols/mode/1up
NOTE: Be specific in your posts and comments and reference specific details from the text. I deduct points for vague answers.
Questions:
-By saying that Ivan’s life “had been most simple and most ordinary and therefore most terrible” Tolstoy, obviously, disapproves if Ivan’s life. But why? What was so terrible (“most terrible”!) about his life and why? What was missing in his life?
-We learn about Ivan’s death on the very first page from a short announcement in a local newspaper and the rest of the story is dedicated to conveying Ivan’s experience of dying. So, apparently, Tolstoy removes all the suspense from the story by not leaving any chance for the character to survive. Why did Tolstoy choose such a structure? What is the major theme of the story?Why Tolstoy describes Ivan’s dying in so many details? What part of Ivan’s dying does Tolstoy focus and why?
-What stages does Ivan go through in his suffering and what does he realize at the end? What are his regrets?
Thank you ^^

Research this topic further and support your arguments with the results of that research.

The Texas Legislature passed a law requiring public colleges and universities in Texas to allow for licensed concealed carry of handguns on campus. The implementation of the law is occurring in two phases. Campus carry began for public universities on August 1st of 2016 and it began on community college campuses on August 1st of 2017,
<
This measure was popular when it was debated and it was supported by a majority of Texans. However, the measure was opposed by a majority of college students and faculty. That opposition continues as colleges implement campus carry and it seems prudent to revisit this issue.
<
Should campus carry be allowed in Texas? Research this topic further and support your arguments with the results of that research. I have included an article below to provide a highlight of some of the issues present in this debate, but this is not an exhaustive accounting. (While interesting, I would prefer that you NOT debate whether or not class or office hours should be held in bars to bypass campus carry)

My argument would be yes campus carry should be allowed
