    This is thought provoking - exactly what a question asks of its answer.
    I have to think about it. Thanks for the question.

    On here we often see headings like:
    How to make an apple pie
    offered as a question, which it isn't, it is a statement/title offering the reader instruction in how to make an apple pie.  Sometimes a question mark will be stuck on the end as if that makes it a question, it doesn't, it is then just poor use of English and inappropriate use of the question mark.
    It becomes a question if it is worded along the lines of, How do I make an apple pie?  What is your recipe for making an apple pie?

    Question is someone's interest to know about certain things, asking information from others or searching in existing information sources.

    In other words question is a sentence, that you tell yourself and after that try to find an answer or question is a sentence that needs at least 2 participants, the one who can tell that sentence, and the other that would react giving needed information.

    A Question to me is defined as thought provoking and makes me think of an answer;even if it turns out to be, "I don't know" smile

    A question is a statement expecting a response.  It is a statement seeking an answer.

    It seems fundamental to functioning.

    Please see above to the initial question.  Because, heh, it IS a question.

    You could call questions thought provoking, or inquiries, or whatever you wish.  You would be correct.

    Simply put, a question is any statement that begs an answer.

    A question is the seeking of truth, which helps us shape our views of life.
