I know what a rhetorical question is. But this is more like me asking a question which will definitely draw an assumption or a guess as an answer.

For example : What do you think the oil prices would be in 5 years time?

Can i describe this type of question in one word?

  • It's a "question" -- straight and simple. Unrelated to rhetoricality. – Kris Mar 25 '16 at 6:48
  • A guessable question ? – Nagarajan Shanmuganathan Mar 25 '16 at 6:57

I guess you're looking for speculative:

based on guesses or ideas about what might happen or be true rather than on facts   – MW
