Hi Marina,

'Quite right' means absolutely/totally right. All right gives the sense of acceptable or OK.

Both are used here:

It was quite right of you to ask my permission to go and I am pleased to tell you it is all right for you to go.

Hi,

I understand your answer, but I want to know besides, if it is also wrong to join quite with all?

Thank you
