    The correct answer is "used to hate going to". This is because the sentence is talking about a past dislike for English class that has since changed. The phrase "used to" is used to indicate a past habit or state that is no longer true. Therefore, "used to hate going to" accurately reflects the change in the speaker's feelings towards English class.
