An open ended question is one that an answer is not suggested. This kind of question requires an explanation instead of just a simple yes or no. An example of an open ended question is "How do you feel?". You are looking for an explanation.

A question having more than one answers is open ended. For example,"can you give an example of a prime number ?" This one is obviously an open ended because the answers are indefinite (in fact infinite). But "can you give an example of a prime number in between 10 to 20 ? " the answers are 11, 13,17 19 i.e. total 4 answers. Is this type question a open ended ?
