Display question

From Teflpedia

A display question (/dəspleɪ kwesʧən /), also (known) information question (/(nəʊn) ɪnfəmeɪʃən kwesʧən/), is a type of question in which the questioner knows the answer.[1]

For example a teacher can point at a flashcard and ask "What is he doing?" or "He is doing what?", knowing full well the answers herself.

Compare referential question.
