Hello everyone, would someone here kindly enough take a look at the following question, which was published in a test paper in Taiwan?

  • Martha: Did you notice if she was in her office or not?   
  • Anne: No, __________

           (A) she wasn't   (B) I didn't   (C) she didn't  (D) I wasn't

This answer provided in the test paper is (B). Yet, is (A) acceptable, I've been wondering? Is there a grammatical rule or any convention suggesting that we should always answer the main clause, not the embedded one only?

Thanks for taking time to explain to me.
