B it is.

Apart from Bhai's point, I want to let you guys know that "hopefully" is a very formal word and is generally not used for better writing. This information is from an authentic source.

'Hopefully' used as an adverb, is considered to be correct English

as in

The poor farmer looked hopefully at the sky for rains.
