When somebody posts cross-examination as a debate round category, what does this mean? What should you do in this round.

Thanks

Ask questions to attempt to show weaknesses in their arguments.

Just kidding.
It means poke holes in their argument.

but if the third round is final, you dont get the answer the questions by the defender.
