    in question

    What does "in question" mean in the following sentence?
    The first thing Evolvable Hardware needs is for the hardware in question to be reconfigurable.
    Thank you.

    Re: in question

    It means "which we are talking about" or "which is under discussion". So "the hardware in question" seems to be "Evolvable Hardware" - the topic of the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: in question

    It means "under discussion" or "under consideration".
