Sometimes people use this on me, instead of asking me question directly, they ask it with a statement.
For example, instead of asking me
Do you own a car?
They will state
Wow, it must be nice to drive around town with your own car instead of a bus
If I object to this statement, I imply that I don't own a car. If I don't, they assume that I own a car.
Is there a technical term in rhetoric or English syntax for a question posed as a statement?
