I am trying to construct a sentence that covers both replies and responses.

No need for you to answer this question. I went over your (replies/responses) in this conversation and know that your answer is yes.

Can you combine both meanings like this?

No need for you to answer this question. I went over everything you said in this conversation and know that your answer is yes.

Is ‘reply’ or ‘responses’ using “I went over everything you said in this conversation” better as it covers replies and responses?

I want to mention that their general replies as well as responses to questions from the conversation we had is how I came to the conclusion that the answer is yes.

  • Thank you. Do I need the word “had” or is the sentence fine without it? //// Also, should the end of the sentence be “I know the answer” or just ”know the know answer – user125657 Dec 4 '20 at 22:10

    You don't need "had", because there's nothing in what you said that would require past perfect. You could leave out the "I" or include it; the sentence works either way. – Jack O'Flaherty Dec 4 '20 at 22:16
