    it's years..

    hello,
    I want to know what is the correct answer for this sentence..

    It's years .... to Australia.

    a)since John went
    b) that Carolina hasn't gone

    my guess would be (a).I wonder if both could be acceptable?
    I want to know if there's a particular law about this usage 'it's + period'

    thank you.

    A sentence quite like* b would work, but with a couple of changes:

    It's been years since Carolina [went/has been - depending where she is now] to Australia.

    b
