    Hello Forum Guy!

    Thank you for the answer :D

    The question is:

    Will member of your familly accompany you to Mexico city?


    The letter is pretty formal.

    Thank you once again.

    :D

    Hi, K-Milla! I agree with little harley. You can answer the question with, "Yes, a member of my family will accompany me to Mexico City." Also, from the question, it sounds like they want to know which member will be accompanying you.

    Thanks to you both for the answer.

    But, I want to know how to reply that question with a negative answer...

    So, I guess it would be like this:

    "No, any member of my family will accompany me to Mexico City"

    Thanks

    "No, no member of my family will accompany me" = "No, ningún miembro de mi familia me acompañará."
    Is this what you meant by "negative"?

    Ok. Thank you OnPoint.

    I wish I could have an explanation about the "any", why I can't use it... Anyway, I think this is not the time, isn't it?

    The question as you initially put it requires a "Yes" or "No" answer, though I agree with Forum Guy that the questioner would like to know who would accompany you.

    "Any" is "cualquier", singular or plural. How would "cualquier" be used in a "Yes" or "No" answer in Spanish?

    I hope I didn't confuse the issues.

    K, I wish I could explain why you can't use "any" in your response, but the only reason I know of is that it just doesn't sound right. For one thing, it is too vague to use "any" in your response to the question.

    Got it!

    Thank you! I know that here is not a "lesson's web" so I think I understood why I should not use the word "Any"... Thank you once again for all your help and well, I will answer in a proper way [hope so]

    "No, no member of my family will accompany me to M.C."
