Olá pessoal,

Essas sugestões acima servem para esse contexto ?

Pessoa A: Você respondeu bem a pergunta anterior, agora me diz a raiz quadrada de 1530?
Pessoa B: Agora você me pegou(agora você apertou sem abraçar).

Eu poderia dizer: Now you caught me out OR now you caught me offguard ?

Valeus

"you caught me off guard" seria "você me pegou desprevenido"

Hello everybody

You may use a single word " Gotcha " !!!

See you guys around !

I am afraid not!
Gotcha means "I got you!", and Adriano meant "you got me here". So, it´s the other way around.
Anyway, thanks for bringing one more expression to the table, this way the learner got more than he bargained for. ;)

Thanks Paulo, you're right, I didn't analyze the context of the question.

Have a nice week !

No sweat! we are in the same boat, that´s why we are here, should we know everything, all the time, the world would be boring. Feel free to shed light on any expression or comment I make too. Always.
Have a nice week as well. See you again. 8-)
