    To the questions or of the questions.

    "I want to check whether I have got the answers to the questions that I put on the forum."

    "I want to check whether I have got answers of the questions that I put on the forum."

    "My tutors have replied in reference to the questions that I put on the forum yesterday."

    What is more grammatical "of the question" or "to the question?"


    Please check.

    Re: To the questions or of the questions.

    There's no need for "in reference" if your tutors have actually answered the questions you posted on the forum. However, if you had emailed your tutors to say "I posted some question on a forum and here is a précis of the answers I received", and your tutors replied with "That's great, tufguy. We hope you found those responses helpful", then you could say that they replied to you "in reference to" the questions you asked on the forum.

    It's okay. The verb posted would be more natural.
    I am not a teacher.

    Do you mean "to" by "verb posted"?

    "Posted" would be more natural than "put".
