A rhetorical Question

Recommended Posts

You didn't put a capital letter on your Yes. Also two sets of quotation marks. You need only one.

 

You're not very smart, are you?

D'oh. That was just a troll, wasn't it? Why do I fall for it every time?

why? haha.. how old did you think I was? :hihi:

 

I thought you'd be in your twenties since you have a positive and youthful outlook on life that is a pleasure to read.

 

Then again. . . I secretly hoped you'd be a pseudonym of French footy hero Michelle Platini, who helped his nation win the European football championship in 198...4 (close enough)

Good try but the 82 doesn't represent my birth year! 82 was the age of my nan when I first joined in 2012 :)

 

and I agree with what you say in regards to that awful 'up speak'!

 

 

36 then? :hihi:

I'm not keen when people use rhetorical questions whilst presenting. I understand that they're trying to guide their listeners thought processes but think it sounds really unprofessional.

I just don't like presentations. Or any corporate bulls#@$. It pays me well but my God is it banal, can these people really not hear themselves? That was rhetorical...

Back on topic: maybe a better question/point is the placing of a '?' at the end of an indirect question; perhaps that what was meant.

Examples (both correct):

1. "Is this a rhetorical question?"

But

2. "I asked whether this is a rhetorical question."
