Closed ended questions are questions that provide a question prompt and ask someone to choose from a list of possible responses.

A series of questions is called a questionnaire.
Series of questions are a set of questions that are asked to a lot of people to get information about what they are thinking or doing.
A random question is a question that you can randomly use to spark up an interesting conversation with someone.
For example a random question would be.
What country would you like to visit someday?
How's your day going?
Multiple question marks are aggressive and seen as rude when used in one question.
However if you need to form multiple questions in one sentence then it's considered okay to use multiple question marks.
However it's best to break the questions up and use a single question mark.
The 5 critical thinking questions are.
What are the issue and the conclusion?
What are the reasons?
What are the assumptions?
Are there any fallacies in the reasoning?
How good is the evidence?
When forming a question you can use only one question mark as using multiple question marks is considered rude.
However if you need to form multiple questions in one sentence then you can use more than one question mark.
Although it's better to split up the questions to make them easier to understand and respond to.
An M dash in writing is a - mark.
For example a sentence that would have an M dash would be.
I've worked on this project around the clock and it's almost done now - but I can't bear it another minute.
4 question marks or multiple question marks means that someone is expressing confusion and sometimes anger.
It's considered rude to use more than 1 question mark after a single sentence.
A single question mark is for asking a question; multiple question marks, or multiple question marks along with exclamation points are for expressing confusion.
It is outright rude and should never be used.
To combine two questions you would use a comma/semicolon before the “or” that separates the two sentences and a question mark at the end; or make it into two questions.
You can separate two questions with a comma or punctuate the two separate questions as two questions.
When you ask two questions and use “or” in between, there are two options: Put a comma/semicolon before the “or” that separates the two sentences and a question mark at the end; or make it into two questions.
The reason people use multiple question marks is to emphasize the question which proceeds the previous question.
You can use two question marks in a sentence and when you use 2 question marks in a sentence it's called an interrogative sentence.

Emojis turn into question marks when your device looks up the image but does not understand it so it shows the question mark instead.
So while the question mark in a box might look like an emoji, it's actually a placeholder or error that means that your device's general software is out-of-date.
On Android, you'll likely see a � (blank rectangle) without a question mark.
Two question marks emoji means that a space was inserted after an emoji at the end of a line.
The question mark was invented by an 8th century clergyman and scholar who name was Alcuin of York.
An upside down question mark is to mark the beginning of interrogative or exclamatory sentences or clauses and it's mirrored at the end with standard punctuation.
The 3 question marks in a box means that the person is using an emoji that's only available in a newer software version.
If you have an Android device, this placeholder character will show up as an empty rectangle.
Having a question mark in a box means someone sent you an emoji your device doesn't support.
When new emojis get created, you typically have to update your device to be able to see them.
The reason people use 3 question marks is when they're attempting to convey an even deeper or more desperate state of uncertainty than a single question mark may convey.
The rules of a question mark are.
You should use a question mark at the end of a direct question.
Do not use a question mark at the end of an indirect question.
You should use an internal question mark to show that something is uncertain.
You can use a comma after question mark when forming multiple questions in a single sentence.
However a question mark should not be used after a sentence other than for multiple questions.
The basic rule when it comes to grammar is to not use a question mark or combine a question mark with periods, exclamation points or commas.
To ask multiple questions in one sentence you put a question mark which is a ? in place of the comma at the end of the sentences.
A set question is a collection of questions that are drawn from a selected tests and pools.
You can use the set questions when you create tests and can choose how many questions you want in the set.
A question can be a statement.
For example if you were to ask someone "Do you know what I mean?" that would be a statement question.
However questions are typically not statements, because they do not express something that is either true or false.
Although sometimes people use them rhetorically to express statements.
An indirect question is a question which is reported to other people in speech or writing, rather than the exact words of the original question, for example '"He asked me what was wrong."
The difference between direct and indirect questions is that direct questions are informal and friendly, whereas indirect questions are polite and formal.
A direct question always ends with a question mark, but this is not always true with indirect questions
Examples of indirect questions and direct questions are.
Has the game started yet?
Are they coming with us?
Can you help me move on Saturday?
Do you know if/whether the game has started yet?
Do you know if/whether they're coming with us?
Is there any chance you could help me move on Saturday?
Notice that the indirect question has the word order "the time is" (i.e., subject + verb) not "is the time" (i.e., verb + subject).
In other words, an indirect question has the same word order as a statement, not a question.) I'm asking where you are going.
Indirect questions are a little more formal and polite.
We use them when talking to a person we don't know very well, or in professional situations, and their form is a little different.
Example of an indirect question: “Could you tell me where the bathroom is?”
