This question already has an answer here:
- Question closed because yes/no answer 5 answers
Can I ask a very specific question whose answer only needs "yes" or "no"?
For example, I am learning a kind of knowledge, I find that there seems to be a mistake in the book (1+1=3), and I propose my guess and deduction process. Because it is too specific, the answer may only need yes or no. The answer is simple, but the question can help others understand the process.
And if the answerer wants to make the answer useful, it may become a duplicate answer. In other words, although there are already some good answers in other questions, I still can’t fully understand.
A more specific example: After I look at the question Should I flag answers consisting only of “No” or “Yes”?, I still can't be 100% sure and want to ask my own question.
