    posing question

    Hello,
    Does "the posing question" as well as the whole sentence sound good for you?

    I will answer the posing question of whether governments need to preserve old historical buildings or not.
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    No, it's not clear what you mean by "posing question".

    Re: posing question

    May the OP mean the question posed by someone else?

    Not a teacher.

    For example, I was asked by someone about a problem. That may be something like that "Does the authority need to maintain buildings which are part of a national history". That was the posing question. Does my initial post have sence for you now and does it sound good for you? Is it posible to use "posing" in such a context if I'm going to write my answer?
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    Re: posing question

    That was the question [that was] posed.

    It's not the posing question.
    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.

    I'm still confused about how to use "pose" or "posing". Is it possible for me to say "I will answer the posing question of whether ..." or I need to say "I will answer the question posed of whether ..."?

    No. You could say "I will answer the question (that has been/was posed) about..." The phrase in brackets is not necessary.

    Re: posing question

    At a push, I might accept "the posed question" in place of "the question which has been posed", but definitely not "the posing question".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
