as the error states "No parameterless constructor defined for this object", you don't have any constructor without parameters which can be used to initialize your controller, and load it

Suppose you are getting this issue in loading HomeController, then there must be a  parameter less constructor for it, something like

 public HomeController()
        {
           
        }

read this line from your error

InvalidOperationException: An error occurred when trying to create a controller of type 'QAWithGurus.Controllers.QuestionController'. Make sure that the controller has a parameterless public constructor.

if you will go through it, you will find it says "Make sure that the controller has a parameterless public constructor."

So that's it, you need to create a parameter less constructor in your controller, as stated above.
