________ a vuestra pregunta.I am answering your question.HINT: Conjugate "contestar" in El Presente Continuo.
I understand the answer Estoy contestando buy why is the preposition "a" included in the original sentence. "Vuestra pregunta" is not a person. Estoy contestando a vuestra amiga
This question relates to:Spanish lesson "Forming El Presente Progresivo with estar + gerund (present progressive)"

According to RAE (Real Academia Española), the verb "contestar" accepts both options with or without the preposition "a" even if it does not refer to a person. I hope this helps! Silvia.

I notice that asistir can also take the preposition a. Is there a list of verbs which take the preposition a in similar circumstances?
