    I noticed that you put "English" as a tag. Here in America, we don't say doubt or doubts, we say question or questions. Doubt is a definition of the word "question" only if it means that you disbelieve, and I believe this is where the confusion comes from.

    If you say you have a doubt, it means that you don't believe something. If you have a question, it means that you wish to have an answer or clarification. I hope that helps.

    Doubt definition http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/doubt


    feeling of not knowing what to believe or what to do, or the condition of being uncertain:
    to be uncertain about something or someone, or to have difficulty believing something:

    a sentence in an interrogative form, addressed to someone in order to get information in reply.


    I hope that this helps. :smile:
