Choose which sentence is correctly punctuated.
A."What kind of fruit," asked Betsy, "bears its seed on the outside"?
B."What kind of fruit," asked Betsy, "bears its seed on the outside?"
Ithink it is A...?

No

really I thought when it was a complete question then the question mark goes on the outside...I thought B looked better....anyhow  thank you

Betsy is asking the question. Therefore, the question mark belongs before the closing quotation marks.

Thank you...

You're welcome.
Here's an example of when the question mark would be AFTER the quotation marks:
Did he say, "I love you"?
This time the whole thing is a question, but the direct address (what "he" said) is a statement.
