You have a right to refuse to answer a question where there is a privilege (eg legal professional privilege or privilege against self-incrimination, subject to any ruling of the court), otherwise you may be compelled to truthfully answer a question, subject to penalties if you are found not to have truthfully answered a question.
You have a right to object to a question. If you object, the judicial officer is required to determine if the question is objectionable or not. If it is objectionable, you will not be required to answer the question. if it is not, you may (probably, will) be required to answer the question.
