Interested in Language
I sent a private message to one of my friends in a forum asking if an information that I included in the same private message
is correct or not and the reply was the following:
"Yes, this information is correct."
Does "this information" refer to the information that I asked about in the private message?

I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
The person's intended meaning is clear, but I would use the information, rather than this.
