"a." is correct

Alice returned from the manager's office--- me that the boss wanted to see me at once.
a.to tell b.telling
"a." is the correct answer. Because "to tell" --the infinitive is used to indicate the purpose.While "telling" shows an action accompanying the action of "returned".According to the whole sentence, obviously "to tell"  can fit here.

my opion

我也认为用“to tell”是正确的。因为:
用不定式作状语时,可表示目的、原因、结果等。此处为目的状语,表示returned 的目的。又如:
Several women come to help her.

而现在分词(短语)作状语时,通常有逗号将其与主谓语分开,可以表示伴随的情况(a)、原因(b)、时间(c)等。如:
a.        He stood helpless, not knowing what to do.
b.        Being a student, he was naturally interested in museums.
c.        Walking through the park, we saw a fine flower show.

有时分词和谓语的关系比较密切,则无逗号把它们分开。如:
1.        She went swimming every day.
2.        She was busy packing.

thanks and confused

这是2004年全国卷(4)中的一道单选题,所给答案是teling,如果书没有错的话,我到网上还没查到是否书错了。
我也同意此题为to tell,所以救助各位高手。

Compare

a) Alice returned from the interview saying that she was not optimistic about getting the job.

b) Alice returned from the trip grumbling that it was a waste of time.

c) Alice returned from head office saying that the boss wanted to hold a staff meeting at once.

d) Alice returned from head office saying (to me) that the boss wanted to hold a staff meeting at once.

The sentence,  "Alice returned from the manager's office TELLING me that the boss wanted to see me at once" is the correct one in my opinion.
