The answer makes it harder for me to know if the riddle is correct.

My prefix may be your end

My suffix is a question

Sadly my infix can´t be together with my prefix or suffix (normally) :(

Hint 1:

My suffix is short and mostly asked by young people

Hint 2:

If we don't care the prefix may be our all end

Hint 3:

One of my edits may be a big hint on my small infix

Hint 4:

Don't worry there are so many specialist fighting against my prefix

is it

Germany,

My guess for the prefix:

Germ, an epidemic can kill all people, there are scientist who research the cure

The infix:

an, pointed out by Wazzabii

The suffix:

y, pointed out by Alan hoover

But I still dont know why it is hard for you to know the answer is correct,

Is it because you are from Germany (from your profile)? or is it because "Ger Many" in my language it spells like "there many"?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Congratulations it's because I'm from Germany and no native speaker. Things like an/a are harder for me to understand and it makes riddling very hard. $\endgroup$ – Doomenik Apr 30 '18 at 13:31

    $\begingroup$ I guess the first line is meta in a way. $\endgroup$ – noedne Apr 30 '18 at 19:24

Let's do this to get something rolling on this puzzle.

Answer:

Butterfly

The answer makes it hard for me to know if the riddle is correct.

?

My prefix may be your end

Butt - end, self explanatory

My suffix is a question

Hint 1:

My suffix is short and mostly asked by young people

Y sounds like why - commonly asked by little kids

Sadly my infix can´t be together with my prefix or suffix (normally) :(

butterfl, erfly - neither one of those really work as words.

Let try this:

botany

The answer makes it hard for me to know if the riddle is correct.

I don't know what to think about this

My prefix may be your end

"Bot" There are many occasions in Films or other Media where Bots or artificial intelligence ends all life.

My suffix is a question

As Alan Hover said in his answer, the Y sounds like "Why?"

Sadly my infix can't be together with my prefix or suffix (normally) :(

"an" is only(mostly) used when the following word starts with a vowel, which is not the case in "bot" or "why/y"

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Wow 2 are right so close ;) $\endgroup$ – Doomenik Apr 30 '18 at 9:16
  • $\begingroup$ I suspect you are correct with the prefix, since it fits the second clue so well. $\endgroup$ – jsm Apr 30 '18 at 11:02
  • $\begingroup$ To help, infix and suffix are right ;) $\endgroup$ – Doomenik Apr 30 '18 at 12:08

I think the answer may be

Miscellany

The answer makes it hard for me to know if the riddle is correct.

A miscellany is a collection of different items, a mixture.

My prefix may be your end

Miscell sounds like missile which could be my end, indeed may be all our ends if nuclear war should occur (as suggested in Hint 2).

My suffix is a question

As pointed out by Alan Hoover, 'y' sounds like why?

Sadly my infix can´t be together with my prefix or suffix (normally) :(

As pointed out by JonMark Perry, the word 'an' is normally followed by a word beginning with a vowel.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Stil just the prefix is wrong, gave another hint now it should be easy. $\endgroup$ – Doomenik Apr 30 '18 at 12:07
