It all depends on how the listener chooses to tát interpret the question, because "would you mind..." requests are usually not meant to tát be taken literally.

"Would you mind lending bủ you bike" is a conventional way of asking "Will you lend bủ your xe đạp, please?". The listener is entitled to tát interpret it lượt thích that and answer "Yes. Here it is", even though "Yes" is strictly an illogical answer. "Here it is" makes it plain that you are agreeing to tát lend the xe đạp, ví avoiding the ambiguity of answering "yes" on its own.

Therefore both your answers can be right. The first answers the real request behind the stated request. The second answers the stated request literally and, in doing ví, answers the "hidden" question.

This is a problem that also flusters small children who are native English speakers. "Do you mind . . .?" " means does it bother you if" If it does not bother you the correct quick answer would be "no". if we were to tát say "Yes. take the bike" we could be communicating that we would rather that the speaker did not take the xe đạp.
