    How could I say it?

    Dear Forum Users,

    Could anyone please help me with this:

    Jane to Kate: Is your husband at home?
    Kate: He is in London.

    Can I say: the answer refers to the whereabouts of the man enquired about?

    Thank you.

    Csika

    It doesn't really "refer" to it, it states it.

    It's a bit elaborate to state it like that. "The answer tells us where the man is" is much more straightforward language.

    Thanks but this is part of an academic essay and I would need a 'label' like that.

    I don't know what you mean by "label."
