Sui1ran2 虽然 you have lots of wen4ti2 问题 you can still be happy.
虽然我有很多问题,但我仍然可以
Sui1ran2 wo3 you3 hen3 duo1 wen4ti2, dan1 wo3
reng4ran4 ke3yi3 be happy.
sui1 虽 = although
ran2 然 yes, certainly, pledge, promise
虽然 = although

虽 = 虫 + 口
Sui1 = hui3 or chong2 + kou3
The.character for "although" = worm or insect + mouth
Although worms and insects have
a mouth, they can't talk. 😉

然 = 月 + 犬 + 灬
Ran2 = yue2 + quan3 + biao1
The character for "yes , certainly, pledge, promise " = moon, month + dog + fire
Yes my dog barked ot the moon all month causing my neighbors to threaten to set my house on fire.🏠.



问 = to ask
题 = forehead, title, headline, theme
wen4ti2 = problem
问题 = problem
题 = 是 + 页
是 = 日 +正
日 = ri4 = sun, under the light of day
正 = zheng4 = right
页 = ye4 = face on a person or head
So 题 = ti2 = that head thing under the sun or in existence in other words the theme.

頁 and 首 ( simplified 页 ) (OC *hljuʔ, *hljus) were originally the same pictographic character with the same meaning of “head”, and the graphical difference was that 頁 also included the body in addition to the head of the person.
By the Eastern Han Dynasty [25–220 CE], 頁 has since been used as an alternative popular form of 葉 (“leaf; page”) to mean “sheet; page (of paper)”, which is its main meaning today.

The original sense of “head” is preserved in the radical 頁, which is used in characters such as 頭 (“head”) and 頸 (“neck”).
(Thanks to Wiktionary)

问 = 门 + 口
门 = men2 = door
口 = kou3 = mouth
Mr.Tan Huay Peng explains in his book Fun With Chinese Characters that back in the day when someone wanted to know something they came to your door and asked you.
