I asked a question, and my question got 2 negative votes. The way I understand is my question was too easy/simple and beginner-like. So, I would like you to recommend me a platform or online tutoring website etc. for my questions.

If you're talking about this question...

...then I wouldn't argue that it's too simple. Any question can be extremely straightforward, and there shouldn't be any prejudice to a simple problem.

The main issue that I see with it is that it demonstrates a lack of effort or attempt to research the problem beforehand. It's more or less a homework dump - I need to solve X, how do I solve X.

I wouldn't let downvotes get you down too much - if you add more "here's what I tried" to these sorts of questions, people tend to look at them more favorably.
