Hmmm. Tricky to translate. "(Can you) think of five questions" or "Tell me five questions" or, casually, "Can you give me five questions."

I think "Come up with 5 questions"

Nice translation, Joeldipops!

Ask five questions.

Is this the conversational way to say, "Ask five questions"?

I asked the missus to translate this to English and she said, "Make five questions".

So in effect, make up 5 questions, create 5 questions or come up with 5 questions should all work.

The given translation is NOT a how a native speaker would convey the meaning of the given Bahasa phrase. An English person would say "ask five questions", or "suggest five questions".

This is not a sentence we would use in english.

Even 'raise' five questions, would make more sense in English

we don't "make" questions, we can write 5 questions, think up/of. It might be a "literal" translation, but literal translations usually miss important things!
