If two people are debating, and one of them asked the other person a question and he got confused and couldn't answer this question. But he is impressed with this question.

Is there any verb describes this situation??

    I don't understand your question clearly. – NVZ May 14 '16 at 18:44

    A verb, do you need? Why? Verbs don't necessarily describe situations. Nouns or adjectives might. – NVZ May 14 '16 at 19:04

    You've received two good answers that are not verbs or adjectives. I suggest you add "phrases" to your tags. – ab2 May 14 '16 at 19:40
  • Maybe you are looking for "mind goes blank". if you are asked a question and your mind goes blank, you cannot think of anything to say. – Soudabeh May 15 '16 at 13:05

Fair enough

That's reasonable; I agree.

For example, "I'll wait just one more day.-Fair enough, you've been very patient."

  • Is there any verb [which] describes this situation? – Edwin Ashworth May 14 '16 at 19:03
  • @EdwinAshworth Fair enough, let me edit my answer – NVZ May 14 '16 at 19:04
  • @EdwinAshworth I'm not a native speaker. How does a verb describe a situation? Plus, it's unclear what OP is asking. – NVZ May 14 '16 at 19:12
  • Your comments were/are fine; the question needs clarifying (before an answer is suggested). Certainly, the two answers given would be good were the constraint not present. But at present, 'stimie', 'floor' etc seem more felicitous. – Edwin Ashworth May 14 '16 at 19:19

It's a one word statement: Touché !

used to admit that someone has made a good point against you in an argument or discussion: "You say we should support British industries, but you always drink French wines." "Touché."

    Showing entire links on the answer is unappealing, so I've embedded the links. – NVZ May 14 '16 at 18:49
  • @NVZ Thank you. I don't know how to do that, and I can't see the link now. Where did it go? – Cathy Gartaganis May 14 '16 at 18:50

    See the edit history or you can use [title for link](link here) format – NVZ May 14 '16 at 18:58
  • But 'touché' is an exclamation. – Edwin Ashworth May 14 '16 at 19:01
  • @EdwinAshworth Certainly. Clarified in my answer, which describes what the OP is possibly looking for, and possibly added a constraint without realizing the expression to fit the situation would not be a verb. – Cathy Gartaganis May 14 '16 at 20:42
