What is the difference between using "Cha robh" and "Chan eil" for no?

Tense

  • Chan eil mi tinn = I am not ill
  • Cha robh mi tinn = I was not ill

And, you repeat the same verb in the same tense to say 'yes' or 'no'. Thus

the answer to a bheil is tha or chan eil
the answer to an robh is bha or cha robh
