A question is a linguistic expression used to make a request for information, or the request made using such an expression. The information requested may be provided in the form of an answer.

Questions have developed a range of uses that go beyond the simple eliciting of information from another party. Rhetorical questions, for example, are used to make a point, and are not expected to be answered. Many languages have special grammatical forms for questions (for example, in the English sentence "Are you happy?", the inversion of the subject you and the verb are shows it to be a question rather than a statement). However questions can also be asked without using these interrogative grammatical structures – for example one may use an imperative, as in "Tell me your name".

For detailed information about the grammar of question formation, see Interrogative, and for English specifically, English grammar: Questions.


The principal use of questions is to elicit information from the person being addressed, by indicating, more or less precisely, the information which the speaker (or writer) desires. However questions can also be used for a number of other purposes. Questions may be asked for the purpose of testing someone's knowledge, as in a quiz or examination. Raising a question may guide the questioner along an avenue of research (see Socratic method). A rhetorical question is asked to make a point, and does not expect an answer (often the answer is implied or obvious). Some questions are used principally as polite requests, as with "Would you pass the salt?"

Pre-suppositional or loaded questions, such as "Have you stopped beating your wife?" may be used as a joke or to embarrass an audience, because any answer a person could give would imply more information than he was willing to affirm.

Questions can also be used as titles of works of literature, art and scholarship. Examples include Leo Tolstoy's short story How Much Land Does a Man Need?, the painting And When Did You Last See Your Father?, the movie What About Bob?, and the academic work Who Asked the First Question?.

Questions are Illegal in Russia, Turkmenistan, Laos and North Korea because of the socio-economic climate and because North Korea is so perfect its unquestionable[1]

I'm gonna go ahead and be a faggot: Every single one of those questions has an answer. Most of them are also incredibly retarded.

1. Technically, both dropping and falling are synonyms, so both can be answered by simply stating that gravity is doing its job and is causing the snow and rain to descend from the skies.

2. Parasites and bacteria can be found on ham if not cooked and / or cured properly. Also, uncured ham rots faster.

3. Most likely the person who offered the two pennies and, being a good person, the one who received money for their thoughts wanted to remain true to the saying and wanted to only receive one penny for their ideas. Multiple possibilities exist, so stating that anyone in the universe can possibly receive the other penny is a correct answer.

4. Yes. You can't see it because you're underwater and crying, but wearing goggles can prevent water from mixing in with the tears.

5. Possibly a person who wanted to avoid putting in more work and money by crafting or buying a specific throwaway box for delivery food, and tried to save time and/or money by using standard square cardboard boxes.

6. Doubtful. This would mean that people who have had either no clothing to wear or had clothing stolen from their corpse before being buried would have a million naked people in Heaven, since the clothes they wore while being buried was not present. Then again, sin is prevented in Heaven, so nudity may be a possibility since no one would be lustful over others naked forms.

7. Possibly because the idea for wheels on luggage wasn't patented and sold during that time, but was possibly around before the moon landing, it just wasn't publicly sold as an official product.

8. Popular word phrases throughout different countries differ greatly, so other people may claim that actor are on television unlike the group of people who don't say that they are.

9. Because toasting is a form of burning, so technically every setting burns the bread but in different amounts of time and heat.

10. Different variables and outcomes, such as lack of rain, nourishment, nutrients or sunlight, or lots of chemicals killing the plants or animals destroying the plants themselves. Mainly depends on "luck" and how committed the carer of the lawn is to having grass grow in specific spots and how much they want another to stay moderately tame.

11. It's a saying that relates to how peaceful and quiet babies are during the hours they sleep. However, saying that babies wake up every two hours isn't entirely true and varies on both the baby and the environment around it.

12. Because it's dizzying to most to see how insignificant others or places may seem while at the top of a very tall building. Others see how people like to look down on others and then charge tourists and locals payment to go to the very top of the building to view their environment. The binoculars are on top of the building so others can view buildings and people who are miles away, all while being at a bird's eye view. In short, because others see the opportunity to make money and then do so by charging others entry to the top of a tall building and then charge money to use binoculars while at a very high altitude.

13. Yes.

**** your non-answerable questions ******.
