Question: Has mom changed in the meanwhile?
Answer: No. She got even weirder.
In the dialogue above,
Is there any way I can re-frame the question so that it fits better with its answer? (The answer cannot be touched.)
I guess the questioner was asking if mom had changed (for the better) and that's why the answerer said "No" because she thought her mom got even weirder.
Should I add a phrase like "for the better" or something similar to that to the question to make it clearer
or is it OK as it is without it?
I would prefer to keep things short and simple but if it doesn't make sense, then I would have to add something to it.
