Term Definition
Factual question

A question that aims to collect information about things for which there is a correct answer. In principle, such information could be obtained by other means of observation, such as comparing survey data with administrative records. Factual questions can be about a variety of things, such as figure-based facts (date, age, weight), events (pregnancy, marriage), and behaviors (smoking or media consumption).

Example: Do you smoke?
