Short Answers

Giving a replay to a question by just saying 'yes, i do' or 'no, i don't' is more polite than just saying 'yes' or 'no'. That's why short answers are more common in formal English.

First word of a sentence is required to form a short answer, also contractions isn't required in affirmative answers (e.g he does). But contractions are required in negative answers (e.g. he doesn't)

Short answer yana nufin gajeruwar amsa.

Domin samar da gajeruwar amsa, ana buƙatar kayi anfani da kalmar farko ne na tambayar.

Ana buƙatar kayi anfani da cikakkiyar kalma wacce ba'a taƙaita ba domin bayar da affirmative answer (wato amsar dake gasgata magana) misali: "he does"

Amma ana buƙatar taƙaita kalma gurin bayarda negative answer (wato amsar da take musantawa), misali 'he doesn't'
