    it looks like it

    “It’s very good of you to take an interest in my nerves,” she replied, with a scornful glance, settling herself on the sofa.
    “Are you really going to sleep on the sofa?” he said, getting into bed.
    “It looks like it.”

    From Mrs. Craddock (set in the late 19th century) by W Somerset Maugham

    What does "it looks like it" mean?

    "It looks like I'm really going to sleep on the sofa."

    In that context it would mean that, "that is my intention".
