I found a question which IMO has an exact duplicate. But the duplicate has been closed as off-topic. So what's the preferred approach:

  • Flag the question as duplicate of the closed question?
  • Flag the question as off-topic?

Flag it as a duplicate of the other question.

Who knows? Some day that other question might get re-opened. But if one question is an obvious duplicate of another, it should be marked thus.
