    Question A question arise?

    Hello All,

    This issue has bothered me for some time. Can I say, "this problem rises some questions." I am not sure about the verb "rise" used in this situation, though I have found it in many copies.

    Thanks in advance,

    Re: A question arise?

    Hello Nyggus

    "rises" wouldn't be right here. You could say:

    1. This problem gives rise to some interesting questions.
    2. This problem raises some interesting questions.
    3. Some interesting questions arise out of this problem.
