This is the greatest exposure for a business to gain high traffic to their website. To answer the most trending question, go to google and type the question; The first top three questions which appears on the search result are the most trending questions on quora. But it is important to note that you cannot answer a question which already has more number of answers. Choose questions such that has possibly 10–12 answers. When you try to write an answer, make sure it is long (possibly divided into paras) and your content must be unique when compared to other answers.
