    American english

    First I'm sorry to disturb, but I am a writer in my language and in need of a native American-English Speaker, so I thought it's good to register here.
    It's about the following conversation:

    Bryan: But they are not the same then.
    Cathy: No they aren´t.

    The "no" confuses me. So I ask myself what Cathy want's to say with her answer:
    a) That's wrong. In my opinion they are the same.
    b) I agree, They are not the same.

    b is correct aren't is a compound word standing for are not.... So Cathy is actually saying no they are not.

    Thx
    Just to make sure I understand the opening statement of Bryan correct:
    The words "but" and "then" in his sentence "but they are not the same then" don't change the meaning so:
    "but they are not the same then." = "they are not the same.", correct?

    The second answer is correct.
    To want to, is to be able to.
