    Tom: ______________
    Bill: Thanks, I appreciate it.

    (A) No, not at all.

    Re: I'

    B) doesn't make sense. A & D) don't really fit as the person has already offered help, which implies that they don't mind, so they don't sound natural- they would be natural answers if Bill has asked Tom for help.

    Re: I'

    I think there was a typo in the original post. C should be 'I'd be happy to give you a hand.'
