Let it be any field, one of the simple way to improve our knowledge is to ask questions. When someone is teaching us or when we are reading,we have to ask with in ourselves, "why" did this happen. Search for the answers, if you cannot find it ask a person who is an erudite in the field.By doing so we can learn a lot, keep asking questions until, we get the complete understanding. Author claims to, question authority by which we can advance our understading of the world, which is very true.

Everyone knows, we are all living on the planet called Earth but how many of us has ever questioned the shape of it. our ancestors had this question that's why they are able to find the shape of the Earth. For example When a person said Earth is round in shape, everyone laughed at him, saying that how could people stay on it, if it is round. The questions asked by people and in the search for the answers led to
the truth that Earth is not exactly round in shape, Earth is flat at the top and bulged at the sides.

All people who belongs to Hindu religion goto temples but no one has ever questioned, why are we going to temple? but few had this question. They researched on it, they were surprised by the results because the main reason for going to temple is not to get the blessings of God. There questions led to interesting results, they found that our ancestors built temple in the places where our earth's magnetic lines passing
through our earth is more and placed Statues of God in that place where the density is high. By doing so they able to make the people coming to temple absorb more of this energy which is positive.

But only asking questions will not advance our understanding of the world because we have to work on it. Search for the results desparately, it will be difficult to find because we are trying find something which no one in the world knows.Even after finding the results, asking questions will definetly help us to understand more and more.

Summing it up,Both the examples stated above lead to the advancement our understanding of the world only because we questioned. Thus questioning authority and making effort to find questions will definitely reveal a lot to this world.
