    today i listened to a dialogue,
    "Man: Did you know this: after almost ten years in the United States, with such a strong accent.

    Woman: Yes, but he is proud of it. He says it is a part of his identity.
    "

    Re: confusing question

    Sorry one phrase is missing in the dialogue. the correct one should be,
    "Man: Did you know this: after almost ten years in the United States, Li still speaks English with such a strong accent.

    Woman: Yes, but he is proud of it. He says it is a part of his identity.

    "

    Re: confusing question

    Having an accent does not mean you are speaking improper English.

    So the answer IS "B"
