A sounds correct to me.

C - changes the meaning of the sentence to 'I didn't hear about astronaut selection, but almost did'

E - same as above

B & D - can't explain, except to say that they don't sound right

Pondering over this sentence a little, can any sentence begin with About?

Any help on the above? (examples of sentences starting with About)

Ofcourse my FA is A

ans = A

B .. the problem here is that this sentence does not have the 'FLOW' and it sort of 'breakz' the construction.. ofcourse it does give the meaning... but ....

D= the fact here is ''I heard '' first and then ''I THEN knew it was simultaneous'' so I guess it shuld be as A is...

hope that helps!

Have fun :)
