    Question to hold answers

    Dear Teachers,

    how in other word could be expressed saying "to hold answers" (eg. String theory may hold answers about quark-plasma)? In Eglish collocations dictionary I couldn't find examples like: answer + hold.

    Re: to hold answers

    I think "to carry answer".
    But native speakers of English should confirm.

    Try "contain answers".
