    I think you are asking the difference between ANSWER and REPLY?

    (instead of REPLAY)

    1. 兩者都有回答、回應之意

    My answer/reply to the question is….

    兩者同樣可用作答辯之意

    How would you answer/reply to the criticism made of your work?

    作為名詞, reply的用法少answer很多, 只有回覆一意, 多數時候是以動詞出現。

    而且通常和 to 一起出現

    In reply to the letter....

    2. 不過有些情況下不能用reply

    a) 應門 I answer the door.

    b) 給反應 Please answer back, don’t just ignore me!

    c) 對應人/物 It is said to be Eastern answer to Venice. (這被喻為東方的威尼斯)

    d) 符合、滿足 The sofa answers our needs. He answers to your description.

    e) 答案 The correct answer to the puzzle is…..

    見建可查看yahoo字典

    ANSWER = RESPONSE TO QUESTION = 回答

    REPLAY = RESTART / TO SHOW IT AGAIN = 重演 / 重播
