    Use of question mark

    When on a members forum, I will use this one as an example.

    In the title I type...Why is greenland so rich?

    In the message body, I have... .....pulled out of the EU and other reasons.....

    My question.

    My intention is to ask members the question `why is greenland so rich and therefore I have put a question mark.
    The message body contains the answer. Is the question mark in the title correct, as in, is it a statement or a question.
