The book is wrong. Perhaps it is a typo when they printed the book.
Be assured - you are correct. The answer is 'b'
2> soon/ as / sister / see / mouse / jump / chair
a> as soon as my sister saw a mouse, she jumped into a chair.
b> as soon as my sister had seen a mouse , she jumped into a chair.
Or did you have to make up a sentence using the words "soon/ as / sister / see / mouse / jump / chair"?
which one is true?
What book is this that you are using?
The phrase is more likely to be " onto a chair" or 'on a chair'.
'into a chair' seems to suggest some great armchair that when you sit on it, it just about surrounds you.
Also, the sentence should read "...saw the mouse". Otherwise, it would be:
"As soon as my sister sees a mouse, she jumps on a chair."
'a' would be the correct answer as far as the tense of the verbs is concerned.
