Pali Word Grammar from Pali Myanmar Dictionary
kumārapañha: kumārapañha(ti)
Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kumārapañha:The fourth chapter of the Khuddaka-Pātha (Khp.2).

It consists of ten questions which,according to the Commentaries (KhpA.76; ThagA.i.479),the Buddha asked the young Sopāka,then an arahant though only seven years old,with the idea of giving him the upasampadā-ordination.

The boy-arahant answered the questions and this conversation formed his ordination.(See also Thag.v.485; Ap.i.64f).

These questions were elaborated by the nun of Kajangalā (see A.v.54ff).(q.v.).

The Majjhima Commentary (MA.ii.636) on the Ambalatthika-Rāhulovāda Sutta seems to indicate a set of questions called Kumārapañha in connection with Rāhula when he was seven years old.

See also SA.iii.99,where Buddhaghosa says that Cittagahapati,in a discussion with Nigantha Nātaputta,referred to the Kumārapañha.
