If a question is closed for being a duplicate, how do you find the duplicate question?

The duplicate will be linked inside the "closed as duplicate" message. – Bart Nov 5 '12 at 16:44

Not a dumb question, as several seem to think. The great big text warning that the question is a duplicate does not hold the link. You can find the link at the top of the question, next to the up/down arrows for the question.

The link is circled in green. Your eyes are pulled to where there is not a link, in red.

If a question is closed as a duplicate, the respective other question is shown at the top like in this example:
