Does a scientific classification exist for distinguishing between different types of answers? For example, one answer might be complete, leaving no further questions; a second could provide only a partial answer; a third may provide an answer which has no relevance to the question; then a fourth may answer the question completely or partially, but lead to additional questions. I am seeking terminology with precise definitions instead of the plethora of adjectives I could utilize that would be open to interpretation.
