comment How do you say “question”, and which counter should be used?
Yes, 質問 = しつもん (Olumide put it in their answer). もん may be the actual counter, but sounds too formal in conversation (to me). You'd use that to say like "This test has 20 questions" or something.

comment How accurate is the ふりがな on Aozora Books?
This topic is really more about わたくし/わたし than a certain tool. I think the title should be changed to reflect this, leaving out any particular resource.

comment How accurate is the ふりがな on Aozora Books?
@DaveMG: The 漢検 will also mark you wrong for putting わたし; it expects わたくし. At least in all the pre-2010 materials. Don't know if they've update according to this 2010 change or not.
