Hi,

My daughter took an English test at school and gave an incorrect answer to the following question. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Read the following conversation and fill in the blank space with an appropriate expression.


"A: Hello, Steve. How's your concert going?
B: Hi, Yujin. _____ _____ _____, _____ _____.
A: What's wrong? Did I do something wrong to you?
B: Did you forget what you did last time? But, I don't want to to talk about it now. Let's talk about it later. Also, I feel bad now and have butterflies in my stomach.
A: OK, Let's talk about it later. By the way, butterflies in your stomach? Do you mean that you ate something bad?
B: No. That's not what I meant to say. I mean I'm very nervous.
A: Don't worry. You are going to be fine. Sometimes you are too sensitive.
B: But, I don't think I am too sensitive. I just want to make things perfect about my concert. Can I call you back? It's time to practice.
A: OK. If you need my help, call me anytime."


Of the two expressions below, which one do you think is more appropriate for the blank space?
1. Everything is OK, but you.
2. Everything is OK, but me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to ask for your opinion on this.
Thank you so much for your time.

"Everything is okay, but you."

Speaker B is introducing how they are mad at the other.
