Open question: "How was your trip?"
2. Closed: "Do you like hot dogs or hamburgers?"
Open: "What kinds of food do you like?"
3. Closed: "Did you enjoy your vacation?"
Open: "Tell me about your vacation."
What do you enjoy most about your job?
"I know your company is a leader in the field.
What do you think makes it so successful.?
