I think they are either too broad or become too subjective.
If you don't have requirements for your given project on a specific language anyway but are free to choose then it will come down to the major ones (all of them -> too broad) OR you specify some obscure thing that you absolutely need (e.G. config files must be code too) then you get a set of the not so major ones (and many of them -> too broad) OR you state that they must be "easy" or "hassle-free" or "intuitive" and then you have it too subjective.
There are rare exceptions to this. Sometimes you need to code something so special that there is only one language / IDE / whatever available to you (besides machine code) that does exactly that (and usually is written for this specific purpose) like writing controlling software for nuclear centrifuges - but then you already know that one or you will find out all by yourself.
So in conclusion: The questions are not special at all, its just that they will likely end up being too broad or too subjective. And most of such questions will lack the "state your problem" test: The OPs usually just look for the best language in general for criteria that they think would be useful (this is a good example of this).
