    Mr. Wright: I see The Times has yet another article on immigration

    Mr. Wright:
    I see The Times has yet another article on immigration. Have you read it?
    Mrs. Wright:
    No, but intend to do. They are obviously making an issue of it.
    Mr. Wright:
    .....
    Mrs. Wright:
    You may be right, but I hope it's not as serious as that.

    A) At the office everybody was talking against him.
    B) And so they should. Have you any idea how many people are involved?
    C) They should have done so many years ago.
    D) Yes, that's how it seem to me, too. It may lead to some resignation even.
    E) And, about time, too. Did you get a copy of Newsweek for me?


    The key is B, I think D, you?

    I don't see how B is possible. Has the same person set all these silly examples?
    Yes, I agree that D is correct. It's the only one that makes sense.
