What is a “Meta Information survey question”, and how does it work in a survey/questionnaire?

Meta information questions are hidden (usually) questions which are used to track, analyze and report basic information about your survey respondents. This question type comes in handy in figuring out technical information about the devices or platforms your respondents are using to interact with your survey.
