    A would be correct after a semi-colon.
    B is correct after a comma.

    You should have shown us your attempt in post 1. In future, with similar posts, please give us the question, the possible answers and then tell us what you think the answer is and why.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
