Would "give the answer" be correct here as well?

Yeah, but that's maybe a little too literal. Imagine a movie where a guy is tied up and the mob boss is punching him and asking him to answer. In the Hindi version he would yell "जवाब दो!" but in the English version he wouldn't yell "Give the answer!", but rather "Answer!".

It's an imperative, a command. The sentence is literally "Give an answer."
