Mi Yodeya is a question and answer site for those who base their lives on Jewish law and tradition and anyone interested in learning more. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It says in SA OC Siman 124 Sif 11 that one may answer Amen to a bracha even if they didn't hear the bracha (only because they know the bracha is being said and as long as they know which bracha is being said.)

What about in Kaddish. Must someone know to which "Amen" they are answering to of Kaddish in order to answer Amen. Or may one say Amen as long as they know the Kaddish is being said and hear when everyone else is answering?
