Just want to know your opinion on choosing which piece in List B. Easier piece is preferred. Thanks in advance!

I've always found the Poulenc Sonata fun and accessible. It's the most accessible piece in this group in my opinion.

It all depends on what you feel your strengths are. If you have the fingers to do the fireworks then yes, the Poulenc, the Horovitz, or the Arnold might be good choices. If you would rather show off lyrical phrasing perhaps the Grovlez or the Dankworth.
If you have a teacher may be he/she can lend you copies of several of the pieces to try. Also, in terms of "easy", Grade 8 is not meant to be an "easy" exam.
