Answer . Because an answer is an answer to a question which is the question of the answer but usually the question comes first except in English exams where the answer is given and you are asked to question the answer From the above mind-blowing explanation it can be easily understood that que…stions and answers are the opposites of the same category and opposites are never alike so questions are not answers (MORE)
To the right of the question is a button marked 'report abuse' - simply click that - and provide a reason for reporting it. Supervisors will be able to see the question 'flagged for improvement' - and will take appropriate action.
I haven't answered your question because I just now found it. I found it on page 387 of Harmless Nonsense and I never would have found this if I hadn't "turned to the back of the book". Right now there are over 5 MILLION questions on this site, and there are only abut 400,000 people working on them.… The odds ain't good. . It helps a LOT if you put your question in the closest category possible to what you need to know. After all, you wouldn't put a plant question in the cars category, would you? Some people do just that! It takes time to put questions where they belong...time we could use to answer the questions, not just put them in the proper category. . So...Ask the question, put it in the best place possible, and be patient. We are real live people with lives! You don't stay glue to the puter 24/7...neither do we. We are all volunteers. .

The answer for each question is directly beneath the question. The information for the answers come from people who are experts in the field with first-hand knowledge, and also from on- and off-line research by WikiAnswers contributors like yourself.
Usually your question will get answered within a week or so, if someone has the right answer and is well educated about that specific thing.
Yes, of course your questions will be answered! If you do not see an answer within a day, just check back every week and see if it's answered!
I saw that this was a question I could answer, so I clicked on the title, clicked "Answer It!" and started typing my post. At the end of this sentence, I will hit "Save," and my answer will be posted for you to read.
When someone views your question and knows the answer, or has a web-link for the answer, they will post it. Sometimes re-asking the question in a different way will get you an answer quicker.
press the ask button on top of the answer, the green button, and ask the question
Yes. Re-enter the question again later (You MUST write it EXACTLY thesame as the original question) If the question has been answered,you will see the answer. If the question has not yet been answered,try again later. If you have tried checking several times, it isvery possible that (a) the question… is too hard!, or (b) there havebeen so many questions since yours that your question has been'overwhelmed' by newer questions! If this has happened, be assuredthat your question will remain indefinitely in the system! Maybeone day someone will look at it and decide to answer it! But if youhaven't got the patience to wait an indefinite amount of time, youcould always ask the question again but in a slightly differentway. All new questions go to the top of the list and are displayedimmediately. (MORE)
That comes up all the time. People compose a question saying "Which of the following is not a cause of WW I?" (for example) yet they haven't listed anything following that question, and we who answer questions have no idea what they are talking about. Or the question is completely incoherent. "You a…re marble, in unexpected prehensile." It doesn't mean anything, therefore it can't be answered. (MORE)
You can research the chemicals that make up Oobleck such as Corn Starch, and you can write about those. You can also write about Oobleck's history, because it was invented originally as a fictional green goo by Dr. Suess.
There is a dispute resolution program on WikiAnswers. You can contact the Community Advisor Team (communityadvisor @ answers.com) and report the vandal. You can report directly to a Supervisor, who is a site volunteer ready to help the community and has the ability to warn vandals and spammers. … You can also report it to a Vandal Patrol member or Community Assistant. You can see if a member falls under those categories in their bio page. See the links below to learn more about those programs. (MORE)
Rhetorical questions. And what are questions, answers, and rhetorical-entries, without definitions of their key terms ?
The Q&A community of WikiAnswers.com works to answer and edit the questions on the site. There are millions of members and non-members who work/have worked on WikiAnswers. Hopefully someone will find your question and give it a good answer.
I feel as though my soul has fallen into a well. Stone walls surround my hopes and dreams and I am left in the murky past to drown.
There are not any answers available on the internet for theinformation system multiple choice test. Someone who takes thecourse would have to review the study materials given by theteacher to prepare for the test.
Everybody can. Everybody answers these questions, sometimes withopinion, sometimes with fact. But everybody (especially the userswith accounts) can provide answers to these questions.
On WikiAnswers, you just have to wait. Categorizing your question in the appropriate category improves those chances of getting it answered by 50%, and using correct spelling and grammar and making it understandable increases those chances even more.
If a member was spamming questions with irrelevant information, completely off-topic, they can expect to face consequences. However, if the information is somewhat relevant to the question being asked, it is fine.
Other people (like me) answear them if they know the answear. Hope that helps. :)
The star reporter in all of Club Penguin is Aunt Arctic. She writes the stories and headlines for the newspaper. If somebody asks Aunt Arctic a question, she might write them an answer back.
He is answering questions inaccurately because he needs to do more research and look things up and read more. I, a true fan of Dr Cu, think that he has totally accurate and relevant information in his answers. His YouTube channel is definitely top notch and maybe you should rethink your criticis…m about him and his dedication to improving the techniques of weather forecasting for everyone in the world! BIG UP DR CUMULUS! (MORE)
You'll need to ask us specific questions for us to answer you. What are your questions?

You can also go to the community forum to post the URL to the Vandalism forum. (MORE)

Rhetorical questions are when the person asking the question expects no answer. In other words, its when an answer does not need to be said, because the one asking the question already knows the answer. Hope this helps.
No; no question on WikiAnswers has to be answered if it is denied or trashed by the supervisors.
The question 'Are you alive?' cannot be answered with 'No.' There's a riddle that goes, 'What's the only question that can never truthfully be answered no?' The answer is 'Are you asleep?'
Not Enough Information If you are a supervisor: Click on "Trash" (under "Question tools") in the blue bar on the left-hand side of the page. On the pop-up list that appears, click the box marked "Not enough information to answer" and then click on "Continue" - the question will then be re-categ…orized into the desired category. (MORE)
the majority of the people here on WA research their answers, also they are able to answer through their own personal experiences, that way we can all learn and educate our selves and have fun to boot! But both questioner and answerer should be citing a source of the definition (often 'hiding behind…') the term they are using; and if speaking solely from 'own experience' should offer their own definition of any key term they are including; and should openly note what they are or might be excluding.

Usually all the questions have answers but on a rare case, few are answered. :D
People generally do not think that others would not know what they are talking about if they use pronouns like you, them, it, etc. or do not provide all the information necessary for another to answer the question. They do not stop to think that in order to communicate their question well, they have… to use words that allow others to understand what they are asking and be specific. For example: Asking "When did they invade?" does not give enough information and is not clear about who is being asked about. On the other hand, asking "When did Germany invade Poland at the time of World War 2?" is completely clear about what is being asked. Asking "Should you leave him?" is also too vague. A better wording is "Should you leave you boyhttp://wiki.answers.com/How_many_Category_Supervisors_are_therefriend?" because it leaves no doubt about who is being asked about; however, it does not state what the boyfriend did or a reason why you would be thinking about leaving him. That information needs to be included in order for the question to be answered in a meaningful way. The best wording might be "Should you leave your boyfriend if he cheated on you?" or "Should you leave your boyfriend if you no longer love him?" (MORE)
Yes, an answer can have an answer which is a question, especially if you are playing "Jeopardy!"
You cannot answer already answered questions, but you can edit them. ____ It depends on your user powers. If you are have permission on the site to edit a question, then an "improve answer" button will allow you to edit it. Also, there is trouble with mobile devices and editing sometimes, so… make sure you are interfacing with the normal interface rather than the mobile one before deciding that you can't edit. If you find something wrong with an answer and are unable to change it yourself, please contact support, and we'll work on solving the problem. (MORE)
For a question to have enough information to be answered, the asker can't just assume someone knows what they mean. Be very specific. If you are asking about a specific person, place, or thing, use the name, and not the pronoun. X = What books did she write? â = What books did JK Rowling w…rite? When the word "she" was used, no one knew who the asker was talking about. X = How much money does he make a year? â = How much money does Donald Trump make a year? Same thing here. No one could just guess at who "he" is. X=How do you open the hood? â = How do you open the hood on a 2007 Ford Ranger? Every car is different. People need to know which type you are talking about. X = What is it all about? â = What is the play Potted Potter about? Again, no one would know what "it" is. (MORE)
"I think you know why..." . "because..." . "it just has to be that way..." . "why not?"
Questions such as "In the following diagram - which is the larger area" or "How long does it take to get from New York to San Francisco" - In the first question - it's obvious that the asker is wanting a homework question answered - but browser limitations mean they can't actually show us the diagra…m. In the second example - the asker hasn't told us what method of transport they're travelling by. (MORE)
Some replies might be: . Why do you need to know this . Let me think about that for a while . How will my answer help you . How will my answer be used . I don't care to share personal information.
There is no guarantee that your questions will ever be answered, but if you want a better chance, make sure your questions are: 1) Clear in what you are trying to ask - If a potential responder cannot understand what you want to know, they can't do much to help you 2) Categorized properly - As of …now, you can include up to 3 categories your question falls under...use them wisely! For example, you probably won't find much help for a question about sports in the programming community. 3) Ask around - If you have an account, you can try contacting other users directly to see if they can help you out. Also, categories usually have designated users to monitor the answers (they are usually picked for the quality and quantity of their answers), so you could try starting with them. (MORE)
Anyone (including you) can answer (or edit) questions. This is a"wiki" site that is open to everyone. There are also experts andsupervisors in each category who provide as many detailed answersas they can and also supervise the other answers for quality.
What happens when a historian has more information than he or she can use in answering a historical question?
The historian often has much more information than he, or she, can use in answering a historical question. He, or she, must sort that information into what is important in the progression of the story. Too much information is as bad as too little. Consider discarding any information that is not vita…l to telling the story, however, you may choose to include a few information snippets to make the story interesting and draw your reader into events. Asking and answering yourself questions can help in sorting information. Use only the most important and credible historical sources. Consider discarding information from secondary sources, rather than primary sources. If you have information from two sources, one a primary source and one a secondary source use the primary source information, you can always cite the secondary source as reference. The historian seeks to use sources to compile a logical narrative that leads to a credible reconstruction. Historical writing is exactly the same as any other writing, it needs to be clear, concise, and say the necessary in a brief, but complete way. (MORE)
