The selected schools for this study are Yekatit 12 Senior Secondary School, Entoto Technical, Vocational and Academic School, Ethiopia Tikedom Number One Secondary School, Tikur Anbesa Senior Secondary School and Misrak Comprehensive Senior Secondary School. The results of the study show that teachers use knowledge and comprehension level questions in the recorded lessons. Table 4 shows that 121 questions or 78.43 per cent of the total questions are classified under knowledge level. Twenty-nine questions or 18.95 per cent of the total questions are comprehension questions. The distribution of questions 1n the classroom is shown on table five. The result shows that 76 questions or 49.67 per cent of the total questions are answered by volunteers and 38 questions or 24 _84 per cent of the total questions are answered by the whole class. Nineteen questions or 12.42 per cent of the questions are also answered by randomly asked students.Lastly, table six shows that 57 questions are good questions. On the other hand, loosely-worded, repeated, multiple, rhetorical, ambiguous, elliptical and limited questions share the remaining 96 questions.
