I often get confused with the reply ‘ that’s fine’.I exactly don’t know the situations that the answer is applicable.


You would respond to a question with "That's fine" when the question is about whether something is correct or acceptable. It's basically a way of saying that the speaker has no problem with what the questioner is asking about.

For example, you might respond with "That's fine" to any of these:

Would you like us to schedule a taxi for you for tomorrow morning?
I got Terry some new shoes for her birthday; do you think that's OK?
I'm sorry, but the earliest that Dr. Chandra can see you is 11 AM tomorrow; do you still want to make that appointment?

  • If the speaker has a problem with the questioner at that time what would be the reply please? – Rajesh Poudel Aug 9 '18 at 20:57
  • It depends on what the question was. It might be something like "No thanks" or "Unfortunately not". – stangdon Aug 10 '18 at 15:04
