Student or Learner
I ran across the following question:
Two of the most likely choices are:
A. What about our new headmaster B. What is our new headmaster like?
The given answer is B. But I would think A is also fine, since it can be used to introduce sb/sth into a conversation.
What do you think of this question?
Thank you very much.

As a colloquialism, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it, in my opinion, although of course B is more clearly the "correct" answer. "How 'bout them dogs?" is the accepted, if ungrammatical, rallying cry for one of our state universities (the University of Georgia Bulldogs).
Was there a question mark following A in the original?
