Leading

(v) Leading is the method of questioning by which a person can answer them in the way expected by the questioner. Such leading method is resorted to help the witness to remember the issue. eg. Attorney asking his question, 'was it about 5 in the evening, you saw the fight between the parties' , the answer can be a clear 'yes'. Leading questions to own witness are generally disallowed by the judges.
