    How to ask if I am not sure what my interviewer's question is?

    Hello there,

    During telephone interview, how should I ask in an appropriate way that if interviewer is asking the A question for instance? Because I am scared my understanding might be incorrect about the question. Can I say are you asking blah, blah question? But really dont think that is a good way to express this.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    I just want to make sure I answer your question correctly. Do you mean ... [blah blah blah]?

    If I understand your question, you want to know ... [blah blah blah]. Is that right?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
