Thanks, it was not given as a possible response on the writing challenge.

It will depend on context -

You might say: "J'ai reçu une réponse positive à ma demande".

The two verbs are different as in English, 'to obtain' and 'to receive'.

The writing challenge cannot give every single possibility and has to narrow them down, I think....
