on stack overflow we can edit the questions and this problem is based on that.


I was asking problem A and got the solution of A but face a new problem B.

  • How do I mention (reference back) the problem A while telling problem B?


  • How do I mention (reference forth) the problem B when updating the question of problem A ?

Which one is the correct sentence while writing problem B ?

  1. prior to this question [ link of problem A ]

  2. along with this question [ link of problem A ]

it's seems like consecutive question, child question would be asked based on parent question.What we call these kind of questions?

    A "preceding problem", probably. – CowperKettle Nov 27 '14 at 5:20
  • How do I mention ? moving with preceding problem..is it? – diEcho Nov 27 '14 at 5:21
  • "Moving with preceding problem" makes no sense to me out of context. You probably should compose several full sample sentences and put them into your question to allow others to better understand in which way do you intend to use the term. – CowperKettle Nov 27 '14 at 5:24
  • @CopperKettle . I am looking for the sentence structure. would you please help me – diEcho Nov 27 '14 at 5:26
