    This question is about Verbals, that is, ‘fiilimsi‘. In Turkish, there are several participles, in other words ‘verbal adjective suffixes’, such as an-, ın, -er, -dık, -dük etc. to form a sentence. As is the case with English, we mostly make a complex sentence with relative clauses (that, which etc. in English, -en, -ın, -er, -an etc. in Turkish) as well. In Turkish, however, we use postfixes which follow the verb.
    “Cevapladığın”, in a grammatical manner, has two potential meanings.
    The first, as having a verbal adjective ‘-ın’, is a part of a complex sentence, for example;
    Cevapladığın soruyu hatırlayamıyorum: ‘I can’t remember the question (that) you answered’. As can be seen, Cevapladığın means ‘(that) you answered’, so ‘–ın’ is ‘that’, as a part of a verbal. This is what a ‘fiilimsi’ looks like.
    The second is just a verb inflection: ‘Sorumu cevapladığın için teşekkür ederim.’ “Thank you for answered my question.” ‘-dığı için’ means ‘that’s why, because of’. So, verb+dığı+personal ending+için.

    your answer = cevabın
    cevapladığın=the question that you already answered
