    To.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: answer of/to my question

    Thank you. Then, it will be a little hard to detect or notice if "to" is correct or "of" is correct in context which we nonnative English speakers want to make.
