My almost-3 year old can be like this. He has a minor speech delay, but generally he talks in sentences that are appropriate, understands everything, and hears fine. He just hates being questioned. He knows all his colors and will sometimes answer a "what color is that" question, but more often refuses. I picture him thinking "duh. You know it's blue, I know it's blue, why do I have to answer, then" He answers "what do you want" questions OK (but not great), but "quizzing" questions are more of an issue
Is this a problem? I don't really know. We had an evaluation for speech, but they couldn't really finish because he refused to engage with the evaluator. He talked to her about the room, stuff on the table, etc, but wouldn't do the formal evaluation. So at the least, it interfers with evaluations and later school stuff.
