There was an English question in my English test that confused me a lot.

- What if I fail the exam tomorrow?
A: - Be confident.
B: - Not at all. You can make it.

I think A is the correct answer but I can't explain why B is wrong. Can you explain to me? Thanks a lot.

  • However, the first answer is also wrong. That's not an appropriate answer for the way the question is phrased. – Jason Bassford Jun 5 '18 at 14:22

To say "Not at all", there must be a (yes/no) question.

  • Do you think that I will fail the exam tomorrow?
  • No, not at all. (I do not think of it at all)
