    Are you agreeable to the plan?

    Are you agreeable to the plan?

    Short answers to the above sentence:

    1. Yes, I am
    2. Agree =I agree
    3. Agreed=That is being agreed

    Is it correct to say 'Agreed=It is agreed'.

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Are you agreeable to the plan?

    Most native speakers would say 'Yes', or at most 'Yes, I am'.

    Thanks Moderator 5jj & VIP member Rover_KE

    If we receive an e-mail to ask "Are you agreeable to the plan?"

    Is it common to reply by just marking "agree" or 'agreed"

    Thanks.

    What do you mean by "marking?" Are you checking a box that says "agree" or are you actually providing a written response? If it is the latter, 5jj and Rover have provided the short answers that you originally requested. Another option would be "I agree."

    Re: Are you agreeable to the plan?

    If a question begins "Are you ...?" then the answer would logically be "Yes, I am" or "No, I am not".
