My answers to the questions of the test

Did you really know it? And did you also describe it correctly? Perhaps you have noticed how incorrect our every day phrases can be and how important our own role as observer is for all descriptions. He who does not make an effort to express himself correctly because he does not think it over, will not fully understand the matter about which he wants to speak, and thus will not be able to describe it properly. This is the root of most of the problems, which we have with things also in science.
