Question: Tell your friend that you are not busy..
Hint 1 是 is not used
不 should be placed in front of 忙
我 不 忙 。
In colloquial Chinese the affirmative form of 忙 is often
preceded by 很. 我 今 天 很 忙 (I am [very] busy today). 我 今 天 忙
sounds incomplete, or like the answer to a question. If 我 忙 is
followed by another phrase, 很 can be omitted. 我 今 天 忙 明 天 不 忙 I
am busy today, but not tomorrow. When a monosyllabic stative
verb such as 忙 is used in a question: 你 忙 吗? Are you busy? 很 can
be omitted. The answer to this question is 我 忙 I am busy.
