Explanation

A Loaded Question is a question which has another question or an assumption mixed up in it.

Example

"Have you admitted that evolution is not supported by the evidence?"

This question contains in it the assumption that evolution is not supported by the evidence, so answering either 'yes' or 'no' to that question could still be taken to imply that evolution is unsupported.

Countermeasure

Exposing the assumption hidden in the question.
