How to say....

Which one is more formal:

- The answer is in me
- The answer is inside of me

I give 99% in the second, What do you think.

What are you trying to say? Is it part of a riddle or something?

Normally, if you are talking about a person who knows the answer you would say 
"I have the the answer" Or, less pompous: "I know the answer"

If I had to choose, I �d say "The answer is in me"... 

I �d not choose the other because "inside" makes it seem as if you have the answer, quite literally, hidden inside your body... like on a piece of paper that you �ve just swallowed! LOL

I �m with Marion: "I know the answer." But having said that, have you ever heard the saying "All problems are in your head, and the solution is IN the same place!" And not �inside �. Hope this helps. Cheers, Peter.
