Synonyms of "Question" and their differences

A: "Out of THE question!" means "No!!! There is no chance of this happening! (I won't allow this!)". This is when someone doesn't even want to think about your suggestion or request.

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".

Translations of "Question"

Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? If you possibly tell me I could replace ② for ①?

②The question is whether we can afford a house right now?
A: Yes, it's fine.
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? I have a question.

There are no pens, are there?
There are no pens, aren't there?

Which one is correct and why?
A: I see!

A is correct.

The format should be:
Positive statement followed by negative tag, or
Negative statement followed by positive tag.

In each of your examples, you have negative statements (There is no, You have no, He has never), so they should be followed by positive tags (form A). The reverse would be a positive statement followed by a negative tag question:

There is water, isn't there?
You have books, don't you?
He has been there (before), hasn't he?

Does that make sense? Let me know if you have further questions!

Also, do you mind helping me with a Japanese question? I am at a very basic beginner level haha, but I learned that:

いいんじゃないですか? means, "It's good, isn't it?"

Is this correct? How would you say: "You have been there before, haven't you?" Thanks in advance :)

To make it sound the most natural, I would say "I'm engaging the/this issue"
or "I'm helping out this issue".
Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? (not how do you say,...)my real question is : What is the difference between « end » and « ending » ?

Other questions about "Question"

Q: I have questions about the differences between British English and American English.

I tried dictating part of a radio program. The speaker uses American English and works as a news editor in Japan. She talked about the colleagues she met who lacked soft skills, such as communication and teamwork.

There were some expressions I haven't heard before. (e.g., buddy-buddy, flightiness) How do they sound? Do you think the expressions in the script below are commonly used in conversation?Finally, could you suggest other similar phrases?

Thank you for reading :)
A: The terms you mention could be used OK in UK English, they are not particularly American or business jargon.

'buddy-buddy' is an informal emphasis and can be used with other terms. It just means too friendly, insincere.

(You might say 'he was a bit jolly-jolly' etc.)

"flighty" means capricious. So she tried to seem enthusiastic but appeared scatty.
Q: Stupid question here.

Do 'Folks' or 'Buddy' have their original roots in white lingo or culture?

Not that I mean they are only entitled to a certain group
I know that's not true but I think I've been hearing those words from white guys rather than the others more than usual.

I'm only studying English from the internet, not in real life, so I know I must be very wrong on this but I just wanted to clear up my curiosity.

Thank you!
A: Yes, mostly white men age 40-60 say these words.
Q: I have a question about the following sentence.

We create connection using the interface, the implementation of which we are not concerned about.


What does it mean ‘of which’?
If it is just ‘which’, it would be incorrect?
I don’t know why we need to add ‘of’, so could someone please tell me the reason?
A: yes you can say that .. that’s actually the correct way to say it.
Q: So, I always studied that, to make a question, I have to switch subject and verb (Is it..? Have I..?), but in TV series people often make questions just by adding the "?" (This is it? and not Is this it?).


WHY?
A: It's an informal way of drawing attention to the qay that someone else seems to be saying or implying something odd. "This is it?" means something like "Are you really telling me that this is it?"
Q: I have the question about ‘zits’ in ‘whozits’ and ‘whatzits’. I heard these words from little mermaid. When do you use this word in a daily life situation?
A: "thingamabob" is the same as my previous answer.

"stuff" is commonly used in daily conversation. It describes things you don't know.

It's also similar to これら、それらなど…

It replaces nouns that are plural. But only objects, not living beings like people or animals.

Example:

📕✒🍓

Stuff


Wrong:

👨😺

Also, "stuff" can mean ideas and information.

数学

I don't understand this stuff (I don't understand math)
