This question already has an answer here:

I can say "I will go", or "I'll go", and the both mean the same thing.

However, if you ask me "Can you go?", can I respond with "I'll" instead of "I will"?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Yes, that is completely fine.

I'll go sounds as plausible as I will go if someone asks you that.

EDIT:
NO, it is incorrect if you're merely answering with "I'll". "I'll" can never be used alone.

Sorry, I got confused.

    Yes, but I'm asking if merely "I'll" is correct usage – Raj More May 3 '16 at 16:55

    Oh, sorry for the confusion. Then no, it is incorrect if you're merely answering with "I'll". "I'll" can never be used alone. – Alan May 3 '16 at 17:19
  • @Alan, you should probably edit your answer to give people a chance to reverse their downvotes. – Hellion May 3 '16 at 17:44
