¡Hola William!

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?
