I assume you're asking about line 131 in "learning_site/courses/views.py", and you can see where "question" is created and assigned in the first statement of "answer_form" on line 120:

    question = get_object_or_404(models.Question, pk=question_pk)

I get where the question is coming from in line 120, but it is also used in line 94 in 'create_question' view; where are we getting that 'question' from? Also, for none of the forms, the 'action' field is specified, so how does the form knows which view to go to when we hit the save or button??

Oh, I see. I was looking at a different point in the video.

The "question" in "create_question" is created on line 89:

            question = form.save(commit=False)

When no action is specified, the browser just refreshes the current page on submit.
