    The question is wrong - the word is 'yesterday'!

    As for the answer, teschers don't just provide answers here. What do you think?

    Besides, there's something wrong with either the comma or the capital letters in the answers to choose from.

    BobK;704354, teacher,I'm not just for answer. I chose C What fun, but the answer given in the book is D How fun, I got confused. So I come here and hope to get an explanation.

    Now, you give me another answer B, it makes me more confused. Could you please explain it for me? Thank you!

    You are right. The book is wrong.

    Now, you give me another answer B, it makes me more confused. Could you please explain it for me? Thank you!
    He didn't give the answer as B. He signed off with a lower case initial, as I might now -

    f

    Thank you!

    "What fun!" is short for 'What fun it was!'

    I believe "how fun" is correct too, at least in American English. I've heard it many times.

    I don't doubt that you have, probably from teenagers. But I wouldn't recommend that you learn English from teenagers.

    Thank you for your recommendation. I have heard it from adults mostly. (I have little contact with American youth.)

    Do you not accept that using "fun" as an adjective is correct in informal contexts?

    Re: Helllo, Teachers, Which one is correct?

    What an interesting topic!

    If I may, I would like to say a few words.

    I may be mistaken, obviously. But I have seen/heard many native English speakers say/write:

    What nice a car.
    What a nice car.
    How fun it was.
    How fun.
    What a beautiful girl
    How beautiful she is.

    'What fun' is new to me, as would 'What beautiful girl she is'.
