Student or Learner
From another test of mine:
"Would you mind giving a hand with this?"
A No, not at all
B Yes, I'll do it now
C Well, I'd love to
The answer is A but I don't think that's how people usually respond in that situation. Why isn't B nor C correct?

B is OK, but people are more likely to use it when they do someone a favour and do the task without assistance from the person making the request IMO.

Would you mind giving me a hand with this?
No, not at all.
Yes, of course.
No, I guess I have time.
Yes, I guess I have time.
Help you with what?
I can't, sorry. I'm busy.
... and lots of other alternatives!
These are very tricky questions to write for tests- it's easy to hear the right answer in your head and think the others are wrong.
