I'm confused about this dialog I extract from my exam.

A:Honey,let's eat out tonight. What do you think?
B:_____________ I don't feel like cooking anyway.
A:Perfect.

1.Not again!
2.You can say it again
3.Why not?
4.Can I take a rain check?
5.You must be kidding me.

I'm wondering I should answer 2 or 3. I can't tell apart their meanings anymore. Could you explain that for me?

  • So, you are undecided whether to choose #2 or #3. What is your reasoning/thinking/interpretation of these? – Mick Jul 30 '19 at 11:44

Lets first answer the exam question.

A:Honey,let's eat out tonight. What do you think? B:_____________ I don't feel like cooking anyway. A:Perfect.

I don't feel like cooking anyway. is negative so we would be looking for a missing positive option.

2.You can say it again

3.Why not?

You can say it again is wrong the phrase is you can say that again! Link C.E.D.used to show that you completely agree with what someone has said

So the correct answer is Why not?

Now I think you will agree that the difference between You can say it again & Why not? is irrelevant.
