Why is it two words (đơn giản) if the translation for only giản is also 'simple'? Can it be câu hỏi giản?

giản is not used alone, it needs to be paired with đơn.

In English, we mostly always attach "just" to "simple." i.e. He just has a simple question; I just have a simple computer. Just FYI for anyone that's learning English, plus, the answers should accept this!

Its a slightly different mood. Using "just" emphasizes the questions simplicity, or "i know you don't want me to ask a question but this one is simple"
