question

Here is my best explanation:

'doubt' is the definition.

('question' can be a synonym of 'doubt')

'one working after pursuit' is the subsidiary indication.

'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).

'working' becomes 'on'.

'after' says to put letters next to each other.

'pursuit' becomes 'quest' ('quest' can be a synonym of 'pursuit').

'i'+'on'='ion'

'ion' put after 'quest' is 'question'.
