So, i was reading a podcast script and came across this sentence :

はい、何に四苦八苦しています? そんなの秒で答えられます。 コロナです

Does そんなの秒で答えられます mean something along the lines of i will answer you in a second ?

  • そんなの is "something like that", "such a thing", or in this context, "such a question". (に)は has been omitted after it.
  • 秒で is a recent slangy adverb meaning "in a second" or "instantly". Use with caution.
  • 答えられます is the (polite) potential form of 答える.

I can answer such a question instantly.
