    verb tenses

    It (A. was B. is) this book that aroused my intrest in learning English.

    In the above parenthesis, should I choose A or B to complete the sentence? Thank you so much.

    Re: verb tenses

    They both work. If this is a test question, it's a poor one. One answer is perhaps more natural/common/frequent than the other, but they are both grammatically acceptable.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
