    follow up/on questions

    Hello,

    Could anybody please explain if there's any difference between 'follow-up" and "follow-on" questions? I thought the former was the correct phrase until I saw "follow-on questions" in Cambridge official examination papers.

    Thank you.

    "Follow on questions" would be a reference to additional questions following an original set of questions or preceding text. "Follow up" depends on context but could, for example, refer to a request to continue a prior action/investigation/study or based on some statement.of a general nature.
