煩請達人指導英文;不痛不癢;

例句: 對於某些問題我沒有專業性(即我不擅長), 因此只能問一些不痛不癢的問題。

謝謝

Update:

I am not sure whether 不痛不癢 can be described as "common knowledge " ?

It is because I am not specialized in this field, I can not dig out any further question yet some questions with common knowedge.

Update 2:

Thanks for three repliers' comments, which are valuable to me.

Especially for 老翻哥( 研究生 5 級 ), thank you again.

    不痛不癢

    It should be described as “make no difference (to someone)”.

    Make no difference: [for a choice] not to matter to someone.

    Example:

    Pick anyone you like, it makes no difference to me.

    隨你選誰﹐對我都不痛不癢(對我都一樣)。

    不痛不癢cannot be described as “common knowledge”.

    Besides, “common knowledge” means 眾所週知.

    It is because I am not specialized in this field, I can not dig out any further question yet some questions with common knowledge.

    It is because I am not specialized in this field, I cannot dig deeper by asking further questions other than some questions of common sense.

    recommend the phrase of "scratch the surface"

    For example, "We don't know how bad the problem is. We've only scratched the surface."

    I am not familiar with some of the things, so I only ask some common questions.
