    A question about "do you mind"

    Hi, guys...

    M: Do you mind if I borrow your newspaper?


    Responding to the man's request,

    can I say " Sure, go ahead" meaning that I'll allow him to read

    my newspaper?

    Do you mind is more formal than "Can I read your paper?"

    So if you say "Sure, go ahead.", you allow him to read your paper.
    But you could also say
    Of course
    No, I don't (mind)(at all)
