"Burning Question" nghĩa là gì?

Sharon* là cô gái nổi tiếng nhất trong lớp tôi.

'Burning question' có nghĩa là một vấn đề nóng bỏng, quan trọng cần phải được cứu xét.

Ví dụ
“Last year freezing temperatures (thời tiết giá lạnh) ruined Florida’s citrus (cam chanh) industry. Millions of dollars worth of produce (nông phẩm) were lost. Now weather forecasts are calling for severe cold. Industry analysts and farmers desperately want to know what they should do if another catastrophe (thảm họa) occurs. That’s the burning question (vấn đề nóng bỏng).”

“Sharon’s among the most popular (nổi tiếng) girls in my senior class (lớp 12). So it’s no surprise that I’m not the only guy who asked her to go to the prom (dạ vũ). She said she’d let me know by the weekend. Will she be my date? It’s a burning question. I’m dying (nóng lòng) for her to give me her answer.”
