Asking Claude Questions
One of the main uses of Claude is to ask it questions and receive informative answers.
Here are some tips for asking Claude questions effectively:
- Frame your questions clearly and completely. For example, “What is the capital of France?” rather than just “Capital of France?”
- You can ask Claude about factual information, advice, opinions, explanations of concepts, and more.
- If Claude’s response is unclear, try rephrasing your question or asking it in a different way.
- Don’t expect Claude to have specialized knowledge outside of common facts. It does not have human experiences.

Requesting Claude to Perform Tasks
In addition to answering questions, Claude can perform some helpful tasks for you. Here are some examples:
- “Can you summarize this article for me?” – Claude will extract key points from a given article.
- “Please write me a poem about nature.” – Claude can generate original poetry.
- “What is today’s schedule?” – Claude can remember tasks you tell it and remind you.
- “Find me a vegetarian lasagna recipe.” – Claude can search the internet for relevant information.
When making requests, use action words like “find”, “generate”, “summarize”, or “remind” to cue Claude to perform certain tasks.
Providing Feedback to Claude
It’s helpful to provide both positive and constructive feedback to Claude, so the AI can improve over time:
- If Claude gives a particularly helpful, high quality response, you can say “Thank you, this is a great answer.”
- If Claude’s response seems wrong or irrelevant, say “I don’t think this answer is quite right, could you please try again?”
- Upvote responses that are good examples of how you want Claude to interact.
- Downvote responses that seem wrong or reflect misunderstandings.
Providing feedback helps further train Claude’s machine learning capabilities.

Claude will understand the conversation is ending and politely end the chat from its side as well.
To start a new conversation, just open the chatbox and start again. Each conversation is separate.
