And, from the end of the 2nd century CE, also "problema -atis f." (like a puzzle or riddle)
Etiam, â fine saeculi secundi communis aerae, "problema -atis f." (ut aenigmae instar)

And, more generally, one may perhaps express "problem" as simply "res difficilis".

And "consultatio", which is like "quaestio".
Et "consultatio", quod "quaestio" verbi simile est.
