I hope to have an answer

This phrase is correct and commonly used in English.

This phrase is used when the speaker is expecting a specific response or solution to a question or problem.

Examples:

  • I hope to have an answer to my question by the end of the day.
  • She hopes to have an answer from the customer service team soon.

Alternatives:

  • I hope to receive an answer
  • I am hoping for an answer
  • I am looking forward to an answer

I hope to have

This phrase is correct and commonly used in English.

This phrase is more general and can refer to a variety of things the speaker is hoping for.

Examples:

  • I hope to have a successful career.
  • She hopes to have a great vacation this summer.

Alternatives:

  • I hope to achieve
  • I am hoping to obtain
  • I am looking forward to having
Both phrases are correct, but they have slightly different meanings and contexts. 'I hope to have an answer' implies that the speaker is expecting a specific response or solution to a question or problem. On the other hand, 'I hope to have' is more general and could refer to a variety of things the speaker is hoping for.
