  5. "Jag vill inte fråga."

"Jag vill inte fråga."

Translation:I do not want to ask.

"Fråga" - I would use it when you ask a question to someone and that person just answers what you asked. "Ber/Att be någon om något" - This is more formal way of asking than just "Fråga" but I also believe it is used when it comes to the person you ask have to do something physical for you. For an example: "Kan jag be att få kaffe?" This is just how I would use it so it may not be 100% right! :) Lycka till!

I found the answer to my question in another discussion. The way it was explained is that "fråga" is used when asking a question, whereas "be" is used when asking a favour.

This was a short and clear answer. Thank you!

This can't be "I do not want to question"?

'to question' is either att ifrågasätta (in the sense, 'put into question') or förhöra (in the sense 'interrogate') in Swedish.
