Do you mean "answer"? "Ask" is for getting user input. The way it's 
written above, the device info would be shown as the prompt. In either 
case, apparently the engine isn't evaluating the function.

If "answer" also doesn't work, try moving the function outside of the 
answer command, like this:

put mobileDeviceInfo("DISPLAY") into tDeviceInfo
answer tDeviceInfo
