    The rules say I can't give you the answer, but I can help. There are many verb lists online, but I remember Are is a linking verb

    So I would say A, because a linking verb is "to be" and are is "to be doing"

    Helping verbs are verbs that, as their name suggests, help the main verb in a sentence by extending the meaning of the verb. They add detail to how time is conveyed in a sentence. As a result, helping verbs are used to create the most complicated verb tenses in English: the progressive and the perfect aspects.
