Hi, could you also help me with these confusions ?

1) A. She said that she would talk to you about me helping her out.
B. She said that she would talk to you about my helping her out.

Which one is correct? I think B is correct, because I remember a phrase " Do you mind my smoking?" ... however, I'm not quite sure how well I understand this structure. Could you explain it to me with examples?

2) I had a talk with my boss and she suggested that I stay in my current position for another year. Now I want to tell my friend about this, so can I say " I had a talk with her, and she was suggesting that I stay her for another year." or I should use " sugguested"

Please let me know which one is more suitable in this situation, and under what kind of situation I can use "was suggesting..." ?

3) "Would" or "will"

I know "would" is a polite form of "will", so are these two corrct?

1) I would send it to him if you think it's fine. ( do I have to use "will"?)
2) He asked me for the report. I would be able to finish it by Monday, so may I send it to him on Tuesday? Please confirm.

thank you for your help,
S.

1. There is disagreement. Some people think gerunds are nouns and thus only my is correct in their opinion. You can read about the subject of the gerund He insisted on my/me singing a song.

2. I would prefer the simple past suggested as it probably didn't take the boss very long to suggest that. Was suggesting isn't necessarily wrong.

3. Will goes well with is. Use it. - Your last sentence looks like a message you are sending to someone. I would make one change: I will be able to finish it...

Hi,
sarah88I had a talk with her, and she was suggesting that I stay her for another year.
Here, you should use suggested.
was suggesting doesn't sound right here.
Let me give you an example where you should use was suggesting:
I asked my boss if she was suggesting that I stay here for another year.
