1. The act or process of interrogating or questioning; examination by questions; an instance of interrogating; inquiry.

2. A question put; an inquiry.

3. A point, mark, or sign, thus [?], indicating that the sentence with which it is connected is a question. It is used to express doubt, or to mark a query. Usually called a {question mark}; called also {interrogation point}. [1913 Webster +PJC]
