There are all kinds of questions. I can ask a question that has a simple yes or no answer, like whether you enjoy ice cream or not. You might use a few words to clarify your answer, but the question requires a limited answer. I can also ask a question to clarify something. I may want to know what kind of ice cream you like, and if your preferences depend on seasons, or time of day, or degree of greediness. I could also ask you a “fact-finding” question about ice cream: who invented this creamy delight, or where was it first sold in cartons? If I were to host an ice cream tasting party, I may ask some “feed-back” questions so that my party would be a success—how many flavors and toppings do you think I should offer, and should the ice cream be served in edible bowls?
