    Do / Does

    Answer for a question with do or does, will emphasize the answer.
    Eg: Yes I do. Rather than say yes. Will that give more strong point of view.
    Could you clarify me about this please.

    I corrected some of your mistakes.
    Just look at the quotation.

    Yes, using do or does in such sentences emphasizes the answer.
    She: Don't you love me anymore?
    You: Yes, I love you.
    You: Yes, I do love you.
    -> Probably the better choice.
