An Easy Question

If we say a question is an open-end question, we ususlly mean it may have more than just one answers. In that case, we can simply say it is an "open question."

open-ended question: why do you like CD forum?

The Open-Ended Question
The open-ended question seeks to explore the qualitative, in-depth aspects of a particular topic or issue. It gives a person the chance to respond in detail.  An example of an open-ended question is:

"What products of services were you looking for that were not found on our website?"

Open ended

An open-ended question is something that cannot just be answered in terms or "yes" or "no" or some similar short answer.

You usually ask open-ended questions when you want to get someone to talk, like at an interview; to "draw them out".

If you ask someone, "do you like movies?", they may answer "yes" or "no" or "sometimes" or something like that. Short answers.

To get them to talk more, you may ask open-ended questions like "can you tell us something about what kind of movies you like?", or "tell us about the most interesting movie you have ever seen.".  Such questions cannot be answered yes or no. They force the other person to talk more.

If you want people to talk more, ask them open-ended questions. Otherwise, you may find your conversations getting very short:-)
