Synonyms of "Question" and their differences

A: "The question that I asked" means you posed a question to someone else. In other words, you are stating that you asked someone else something.

"The question I did" doesn't sound very natural, but would be used to indicate which question you responded to on a test, quiz, piece of homework, etc. Example:"I did question number 4, that's the question I did"

"The question that I made" again does not sound very natural, but it would indicate that you created your own question (such as for a test or quiz) for other people to answer.

I think it is poorly written and irrelevant". If you want to answer the question, it is more natural to say "As for your question..." For example "As for your question regarding the environment, I think that we need to invest in more renewable energy".

Other questions about "Question"

Q: I have a question about the difference between the pronunciation of /ʌ/ and /ə/. Knowing what those symbols mean could be unnecessary for native speakers so I've got a brief and nice example. In the word 'London', you guys would be aware that the first 'o'(/ʌ/) and the final 'o'(/ə/) sound different. In my own language,/ʌ/ and /ə/ are considered the same, which makes me confused. If someone pronounces it /lʌndʌn/ not /lʌndən/, would it be easily noticed? Does it make you feel awkward?
A: The issue is slightly more to do with stress patterns than vowel sounds, as /ʌ/ is (normally) used in stressed syllables and /ə/ in unstressed ones. Many varieties of English make no real distinction between /ʌ/ and /ə/ but for British accents that do, it's a relatively 'tolerable' distinction in the sense that most people don't feel overly awkward when /ʌ/ is used instead of /ə/, it just sounds like you're stressing both syllables rather than using the normal stress pattern. The reverse is often less tolerable, however. For example, in the word 'unfair', it is clearly /ʌ/ and not /ə/ - using /ə/ sounds very strange.

I think it's helpful to try to distinguish between them as best you can because there is a difference in standard British English and using /ə/ instead of /ʌ/ can sound quite weird. I wouldn't get too worried if you struggle, though - as I said, not all English varieties make a big distinction between the two and you will sometimes hear people using the two quite interchangeably, so it is not a massive pronunciation issue.
Q: I have a question about the quote, “If every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn’t have hotdogs.”

Which does the word “wouldn’t have” as in that line mean?

1. There weren’t. There were no hotdog available. Any hotdog didn’t even exist (if every pork chops were perfect.)

2. We wouldn’t EAT a hotdog.

I’ve been thinking that it means #1, but now I’m just wondering if I was right.
A: It's number 1.
Hotdogs wouldn't exist in that scenario.
Q: I have a question about how to use “the + adjective”.

I learned that “the + adjective” means specific people like the poor stands for “poor people”.

Here, I wonder if I could use “the + adjective” with “who”, with “preposition” or “Ving~”.

For example,
The poor who live in the area
The poor of the area
The poor living in the area


The first one is the best, but they are all comprehensible
Q: ‎I have a question about question tag. Which of the following answer is correct? Thanks in advance!

I only have to keep on waiting, _______?
A. won't I B. don't I C. haven't I D. mustn't I
A: haven't I is the correct.
Q: This is the question __.
A.that we've had so much discussion
B.we've discussed about
C.we've had so much discussion about
D.of which we've discussed

A. We have had so much discussion—the very thing that is the question (problem) ( but we don’t make a solution, just waste time discussing it).

B. = C. But C sounds more impatient

D. Is it right? I can’t tell it.

I think ABC are all correct, aren’t they? (The answer in book is C)
A: C. is the only correct option.

The different options use either the verb "discuss" or the verb phrase "have (a) discussion".

"Discuss" is transitive and cannot have a preposition like "of" or "about"; B. would be correct without "about"; D. would be correct without "of which" (both would just become "we've discussed"🌚).

"Have discussion" requires a preposition like "about", "regarding", "concerning", "surrounding", etc. A. would be correct if it had one of these prepositions at the the end, or if it had "<> which" at the beginning instead of "that".
