Asking the right questions is an art similar to that of making a striking speech. To improve your questions, start off by asking yourself the basic questions words that include who, what, why, when, and how of your own query.
For example, if you're in an interview asking them about the challenges and requirements of the job can make a great impression on them, or you can also ask about what their thoughts are about you as a candidate. This can be counted as the 'Who' of your question.
'What' refers to the subject of your query. Decide what you wish to know and this will make your question more clear as well as impress the person you're asking the question from. But don't forget to shape your 'When' too, make sure you ask the questions at the right time, asking unnecessary questions during a sensitive situation won't exactly help you earn any points.
'How' is an important one. Asking 'Yes/No' questions are good to ask when you need a quick response but open-end questions are the best ones especially when you want to keep the conversation going and need more details. How also counts as listening carefully before coming up with a follow-up question.
However, the most important is the 'Why.' This can not only develop a mutual understanding of the asker and the person being asked but also shows how a person feels about the topic. It can also show a lot about the asker too.
