    Re: A or B?

    Hi
    Never mind. It's used to tell someone not to worry about something because it's not important.However, not at all is a polite reply after someone has just thanked you.
    - "Thanks for helping".
    - "Not at all".
    So never mind is right here.
    Good luck

    But it shouldn't have the question mark at the end.

    Re: A or B?

    Given the two choices, "never mind" would be the most appropriate response. "Not at all" would be appropriate as a response to a question such as, "Are you upset/angry/concerned that I have forgotten.........?"
