    Thumbs down Thanks for the nice gift!

    “Thanks for the nice gift!” – “___________”
    A. But do you know how much it costs? B. You’re welcomed C. In fact, I myself don’t like it D. I’m glad you like it.
    The answer is “D. i.e. I’m glad you like it” Why not “B. i.e. You’re welcomed.”? Many thanks.

    B. is incorrect because in that situation we don't say 'you are welcomed', we can say 'you are welcome'. So, of the available choices only D. is correct.

    Wink Re: Thanks for the nice gift!

    Many thanks. I didn't notice the mistake "You're welcomed". Thanks again.
