Construction is X than Y

X = turn out to be more tiring
than
Y = they seemed
.
Option A. is right.
B was close one but seem to without a finishing infinitive like "seem to be" is incorrect. Others have meaning issues.

I cannot clearly distinguish the right and wrong from the answer choice A and B. The only difference between them is seemed and seem to. Could you please state the detail explanation for me. Thank you

The idea here is that the games seemed less tiring in the past, before they turn out otherwise. The past tense creates a contrast that wouldn't otherwise be there. Imagine someone saying "This isn't turning out to be as fun as I thought."

I should add that this isn't one of ours--it's from Manhattan Review.

I think the sentence implies a general assertion or judgement. So using past tense is not the right way to put the idea forward. For example : the chocolate often turns out to be more sweet than it seems to. It's more of a general statement rather than a particular person's perspective so using past tense ( according to me) wrong! Please correct me if my line of thinking is wrong.

I'd go with B
