    There is an argument for two of them to be acceptable, in my opinion. By the way, I think you meant "for", not "few".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hello, Harry.
    Well, I don't think "A" is the right choice.

    P.S. I don't think "Mr" is the right choice, either!

    You are right on both counts. A is wrong.
    And emsr2d2, like many of our contributors is female.

    Harry should be able to eliminate one of the other choices without too much difficulty.
