    Hi lewis, if you ask a student a question,then the student keep slience and you say:”why you are not talking, cat got your tongue? can the student say:”cat did not get my tongue!” Is that right? or you say:'’are you under the weather?” can I response:”I am well , I am not under the weather.”

    Student could answer in the negative way to, “has the cat got your tongue?” as you stated in your comment but it’s not that common to answer that way. If student doesn’t answer the teacher , student is not likely to speak anything. However, student could reply, ” No, I just don’t know the answer.” …If you want to reply to someone who asks, “Are you under the weather?”, you could reply, “Yes, I’m not feeling well” or “Yes, I am under the weather” or “No, I’m ok, thanks.”
