I often see a sentence like "Hope this helped." without the subject when somebody is replying to help somebody. Is this a common English? What kind of grammar is behind it? I'm not familiar with the form which the verb is in the first place and helped is a past tense. Is it lilke,

A. I hope this helped you.
B. I wish this helped you.
C. You hope this helped you. (something like commanding, "look at there")

Similarly, I see "Agreed" in first sentences in forum posts. What does the sentence mean?

A. I agreed with what you say.
B. What you said is agreed by me.

Are these common in speaking too?

Hi,

I often see a sentence like "Hope this helped." without the subject when somebody is replying to help somebody. Is this a common English? Yes. It's the knd of short, quick English we often write eg in a casual, informal email.

What kind of grammar is behind it? I'm not familiar with the form which the verb is in the first place and helped is a past tense. Is it lilke, A. I hope this helped you.Yes . We just omit the subject. B. I wish this helped you. C. You hope this helped you. (something like commanding, "look at there" No, it's not an imperative. As I said, it's just omitting the subject for the sake of brevity. )

Similarly, I see "Agreed" in first sentences in forum posts. What does the sentence mean? A. I agreed with what you say B. What you said is agreed with by me. Yes Are these common in speaking too? 'Agreed' is quite comon, yes.

Edit: Strange, indents are not reflected. Also I cannot change the colors of letters when posting.
