Complex Question

In Logic, Complex Question is a fallacy of induction that occurs when someone poses a question that presupposes an affirmative answer to an unasked question.

Asking two questions in one.

For example, suppose in a debate one interlocutor asks another, “Have you stopped cheating on your taxes?” This question only makes sense if we assume the question, “Have you ever cheated on your taxes?” has already been asked and answered in the affirmative.

Complex Question is a sophistical tool to make an opponent look bad.
