    Ugh! What kind of class are you taking that encourages such stereotyping?

    Check your book for whatever it's author thinks is the "right" answer.

    It is very frustaring Ms.Sue, I have read this book over and over, but based on the fact that I have a boy and a girl at home, this seems to be the right answer

    You're probably right that A is the answer.

    Since girls can dress like boys without sanction, but boys get sanctioned for dressing like girls, I would not choose A. I would prefer B.

    I just looked it up in my book pg 546 the answer is B
