    " Are you tired? ___"

    A. I think you did enough for today.
    B. I thought you had done enough for today.


    I think both answers work. But i'm not too sure about B. Does B sound Okay to native speakers?

    Thank you!

    Question A is more curious about how the person being asked feels now, with the nature of 'Are you tired?' given ahead. I think I would respond in present form as well.
