It's not. How would you test it?

Perhaps that is what the OP is doing; a standardized test among a cross section of PF users?

I'm still undecided on the issue.

Does there not need to be a declared hypothesis in the question for it to be hypothetical?
It may be a test for another hypothetical question that has not been asked.
hypothetically that is...

Perhaps the OP wrote the question wrong. It might actually be "This is a hypothetical question?". That would definitively change things around. I agree that a hypothetical question needs to include some kind of hypothesis in it to in fact, be defined a a hypothetical question.

However, is such a statement hypothetical in itself as well? Or does it represent the mainstream knowledge on the concept?
