# In your opinion, is there an infinite amount of questions that can be asked

or is it finite?

• Infinite. Say there are 1 trillion questions. Then for the 1 trillion and 1th question you could ask, are there questions after the 1 trillionth question? Then you could ask, are there questions after the 1 trillion and 1th question? Are there questions after the 1 trillion and 2nd question? Are there questions after the 1 trillion and 3rd question? And so forth.

• Finite means limited (Right?) so, infinite would mean unlimited....so there would be an infinite amount of questions someone could ask.

Am I confused? LOL

• You just proved that there are. You can ask a question about anything, even questions :)

• I'd say there are a finite amount, but there are also a finite amount of ways the same question can be asked differently in order to receive different types of answers.
I do believe that while there are a finite amount of questions, there is an infinite amount of knowledge to be shared.
