Most likely he ask you "why wouldn't you answer me?"

Then, what does this mean? Does it mean the responder's unwillingness to answer or something else?

Somebody is saying "why wouldn't answer me?" What does he mean?
Is he talking about a past event in which I wasn't willing to answer and didn't answer or my fairly recent close to present event in which I didn't answer his?

If I was a teacher 10 years later, I would teach that stuff.

Here I wonder, the past verb in the if clause can be used with the future meaning of 10 years later?

A bad guy is difficult to kill in a cartoon. He keeps coming back from toxic liquid squirming his body.

What is appropriate vocabularies to describe this toughness?

1. I did not take you as someone who drive a hard bargain.
2. I did not take you as someone who drives a hard bargain.

Question about the verb form after "who". I thought "drives" is correct all this time, but I am hearing or seeing more of "drive", which is right?

Thank you.

Shocked that 4 doesn't work.
A coffee grinding machine, a mommy helping hand - their grammar is all fine, right?
But then why not the same structure of "me boosting pill"?

1. I need a boost pill.
2. A boost-me pill
3. A boosting pill
4. A me boosting pill.

Which of them are incorrect or unusual phrase?
(Boost could be any other words)
