If someone asks me:
Will you be free on Monday at 3 pm ?

Can I answer:
I will be free at that time
or
I will be free at that moment
or I have to say
I will be free on Monday at 3 pm
or
Other options?

Thanks !!

    I will be free at that time
    I will be free at that moment
    I will be free on Monday at 3 pm
    or
    The first and third responses are fine, but I think it's more natural to say, "Yes, I'll be free then".

    Edit: If you're speaking on the phone, or if it's especially important, it's a good idea to repeat the time and day - to avoid misunderstandings.

    You could say "I will be free then" as an alternative to "... at that time", but "... at that moment" doesn't really work.

    I would only repeat the date and time (as in version 3) if I'd been asked to confirm something like an appointment.
