    Default I'm told

    --_____ that the sports meet might be put off.
    --Yes, it all depends on the weather.
    A. I was told B. I've been told C. I'm told D. I've told
    The given answer is B.

    I should think all the first three answers are all right. Am I right? What would be the first choice of native English speakers?

    Could I ask native English teachers to help me please? Thank you very much.

    You're right.
    Where did this example come from?

    Thank you very much, David L.

    It comes from a test paper set by a certain Chinese teacher of English.
