Metaquestions are questions about other questions. Which are asked in response or leading up to other questions.

They are almost always dependent on the other question.
Can I ask you a question? *
- You just did.

And also:

Stop answering each question with another question.
- Why shouldn't I answer each question with another question? *

* This question is a metaquestion.
