    I was/am in a mood.

    Why did you not (give no reply/respond?) reply/response yesterday?
    I was in a mood.

    Why don’t you answer my calls?
    I am in a mood.

    Are these questions and answers correct English?

    Re: I was/am in a mood.

    In colloquial British English, being "in a mood" is used to mean being "in a bad mood".

    Your first question would be more natural as "Why didn't you reply/respond yesterday?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I was/am in a mood.

    If I wanted it the other way round, would this be correct:

    I am in a good mood.
