Researchable and Nonresearchable questions
A non-researchable research question is, therefore, one that is not formulated to enable a testable hypothesis to be generated. ... Non-researchable questions could be too broad or vague, or they could be questions for which answers are easily obtainable.

A non-researchable research question is, therefore, one that is not formulated to enable a testable hypothesis to be generated.

The former lacks a defined framework for testable criteria, data collection and analysis, and the latter is readily answered by counting records
