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.
