    Lol i hate english, although according to my english teacher "No, i dont have a brain" would be the correct way of saying that i Do in fact have a brain: Double negative makes a positive (no and don't are negatives) meaning that No, i don't have brain is the same as saying, Yes, i do have a brain.

    Again.. i dont trust english too much though ;)

    I pity you if you're English teacher said that's correct, as in that case - s/he's incorrect. It's not mathematics in which case the rule is always true. :) In language, sometimes it can be true, and sometimes a double negative != positive. "No, I don't have a brain." is an answer with heavy emphasis on the second part of the sentence - "No" followed by for example, "you're correct, I don't have a brain.".

    How do you answer:
    Is John not there?

    Yes, John is not here.

    First of all, please choose the correct sub-forum before posting your question. It's much better if you can read our FAQ page before posting again. So that you can find all our restrictions you must care of in our community.

    That restriction is there because, because everyone expecting a descriptive explanation on your question. Less than 10 words you cannot do it generally.
