Question, Closed

A question that is designed to obtain the answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’. For example, ‘Do you have a quality policy?’ is a closed question. It is used to establish definitive facts, but does not reveal as much information as using an open question. Closed questions are favoured by software solutions that can only deal with questions with a fixed number of potential responses. See also Question, Open.
