"do you answer him?" this sentence doesn't make any sense
Does this mean an "answering a phone" type of answering or like answering a verbal question?
It's like, 'are you going to answer him?, so are you going to reply to his question.
In english, answering him can mean
1) Answering his question
2) Replying back to a conversation with a person via text/phone
3) Take vengeance
So which is it?
how about "do you answer to him?" as in are you obligated to resond to him
