Passport H4 Visa Applied for Employment Authorization Document!

Hi! my question is regarding visa and I am very confused.
I am currently on H4, but we recently applied for green card and we were issued EAD. Now there are multiple issues;

Should I write pending aplication for permanent residency, but there is no gaurantee that we will be issued GC.

or there is another option for Valid visa status with EAD, but the EAD issued is for 1 year only.

or should i go for visa request option.

Please help guys......

Since you have EAD, you don't need a Visa sponsorship.

Write "pending application for green card" in your ERAS.

What did you decide? Did you select pending PR?

I am in a similar situation. Currently on H1b, recently applied for GC as a derivative. While requesting the token I checked 'not sure' for visa sponsorship. I have my EAD now.

Can I select PR in ERAS? I am Hoping to get GC by the interview time. Will this cause any issues?
