I am making a tutorial video on programming language. During video I want to ask question who is watching the video.

Confusion is between 2 words. "I" or "You".

Let's see few examples.

After explaining something in the video I say

Q 1: So, how am I going to do this. Any idea?

or should I say

Q 2: What if you want to update the value of an element at a ... in the ...?

or should I say

Q 3: Now think about this and tell me. What happens if I do this?

Q 5: What’s the use of this ... method. I mean where do I have to use it?

See my confusion. It should be "I" or "You".

    I'm not sure this is on-topic here, but FWIW, I'd use "we" instead of "I" or "you". "How are we going to do this"... "what if we want to know"... it creates a sense of inclusion, like the viewer is actually doing it alongside you. – F1Krazy Mar 14 at 10:24
  • @F1Krazy you are right about the use of "we". But with "you", I want to target only a single person who is watching video at that time. I feel "you" is more focused word than using "we". That's what I have learnt. Don't you think so? – Pirzada Mar 14 at 10:36
