Preguntar una pregunta

Pregunta – question

We don’t usually use preguntar (to ask) and pregunta (question) in the same sentence; we frequently use hacer instead of preguntar when we are using the noun pregunta:


I asked a question.


Pregunté una pregunta. (It’s grammatically correct, but it sounds a little redundant.)

Hice una pregunta. (This sounds much better.)
