  • Thank you very much. I used to think that V-た in sentence A is related to た-form. Now I understand that the whole story is something else! Commented Oct 25, 2023 at 18:53

Note that 辞めた is just past tense: I quit (stopped) [studying].

However, 辞めたくなる is not past tense. In fact this is

辞めたくなる = 辞めたい + なる

which means I'm getting to want to quit [studying]"

Now, if you just said,


then that's just I want to quit.
