He answered to the question.

(1) ? Jack answered to the question.

請問 answer 之後要不要用 to 來引介所回答的事物?

(2a) ? Jack answered the question to his teacher.

(2b) ? Jack answered his teacher the question.

如果同時要引介所回答的人以及事物, 要不要用 to 來引介所回答的人?

(3a) ? "I will not join the party," answered Jack to his friends.

(3b) ? "I will not join the party," answered Jack to the invitation.

如果已經有個 quotation 做 direct object, 可不可以用 to 來引介所回答的人(如3a)或事物(如3b)?

(4) ? Jack answered to the invitation that he would not join the party.

把(3b)轉為 reported speech, 可不可以用 to 來引介所回答的事物?

Update:

字典中說明, 無論 answer 是雙及物動詞, 及物動詞,或不及物動詞, 都無須使用 to,

但用 to 卻很像是很常見, 甚至我自己也習慣了使用 to.

Update 2:

I invited Jack to join the party.

(5a) Jack answered me.

(5b) "I'll join it," Jack answered.

(5c) Jack answered the invitation.

Are these correct?

Update 3:

(6a) Jack answered me the invitation.

(6b) "I'll join it," Jack answered me.

(6c) "I'll join it," Jack answered the invitation.

Are these correct?

    先你補充的內容回應,你見到有些時候answer to不於「對」的寫法,甚至是高官或議員的講稿都會是用/寫錯英文的。

    answer to只有一個解釋:向某上級或高層負責。或以香港的用語:「問責」。例如問責官員是否向市民問責還只是向特首問責 - 便會用 xxx (Head of a Bureau) answers to the public or only answers to the Chief Eexcutive?

    Answer to不是帶不帶出要問/答的意思,你意會錯了。

    (1) ? Jack answered to the question.

    請問 answer 之後要不要用 to 來引介所回答的事物?

    (2a) ? Jack answered the question to his teacher.

    (2b) ? Jack answered his teacher the question.

    2a錯

    2b對

    (3a) ? "I will not join the party," answered Jack to his friends.

    (3b) ? "I will not join the party," answered Jack to the invitation.

    如果已經有個 quotation 做 direct object, 可不可以用 to 來引介所回答的人(如3a)或事物(如3b)?

    3a錯

    3b錯

    (4) ? Jack answered to the invitation that he would not join the party.

    把(3b)轉為 reported speech, 可不可以用 to 來引介所回答的事物?

    錯,不會/不需要用to.

    Jack answered the invitation that he would not join the party.

    以上所有你用錯的answer to如果照寫法譯為中文意思是:

    1. Jack向一條問題負責任。

    2. 畫蛇

    4.Jack對邀請負上責任,就是他不會出席。
