In an early paper [C. M. Horowitz and E. V. Albano, Phys. Rev. E 73, 031111 (2006)], we studied growing models, generically called X/RD, such that a particle is attached to the aggregate with probability p following the mechanisms of a generic model X and at random (random deposition) with probability (1−p). We also formulated scaling relationships that are expected to hold in the limits p→0 and L→∞, where L is the sample side. In the previous comment, Kolakowska and Novotny (KN) state that our scaling hypothesis does not hold. Here, we show that the criticisms of KN are outlined by analyzing data out of the proper scaling regime and consequently they are groundless and can be disregarded.
