    In the previous question/to the previous question

    Ex1. I have already answered the question in the previous question.

    Ex2. I have already said the answer in the previous question.

    Ex3. I already covered this question in the previous question.

    Ex4. I have already answered the question in a previous question.

    Ex5. I have already said the answer in a previous question.

    Ex6. I have already said the answer in an answer to a previous question.

    Ex7. I have already said the answer in the answer to a previous question.

    Ex8. I have already said the answer in the answer to the previous question.

    Ex9. I have already said the answer in answer to a/the previous question.

    Ex10. I have already answered this question in my answer to a/the previous question.

    Q. Are all of the above grammatically correct and acceptable to use in a formal setting? (The accurateness for this is crucial as I may be using them in a presentation/oral exam.).


    Thanks in advance.

    Re: In the previous question/to the previous question

    Consider 'I have already answered this question in reply to an earlier one'.
