Doubt or Question?
Many English learners confuse the nouns ‘doubt’ and ‘question’.
A ‘question’ is something you ask when you want to find out information.
‘Can you answer my question?’
‘Does anyone have any questions?’
The noun ‘doubt’ describes a feeling of not being sure about something.
‘I have doubts about my ability to pass the test.’
‘I never had any doubt you could do it.’
So if you have ‘doubts’ it means you feel uncertain.
If you have ‘a question’, it means you want to ask something in order to find out more information.
