    In British English it's A (according to Meriam Webster's Dictionary):
    Sporty - Definition for English-Language Learners from Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Both A and B are possible in BrE.

    In AmE, women are not "sporty." One might call a car "sporty."

    Re: Sporty

    I looked up sporty here
    sporty - definition of sporty by Macmillan Dictionary

    a sporty person likes playing sport and plays regularly

    This is a question from a test and if there is only one answer so which one will you choose?

    Re: Sporty

    It's not a very good question. I would choose B, though I think A is OK too.
