Master’s Tip to Learn Elucidate

Many a times in classrooms, students don’t raise a question, despite the fact they are not clear about the topic. They feel shy to raise their hand and ask about it, because they think what others will think, whereas the fact is when a student raises question, many other thanks him/her at the back of the mind for raising it, because they too have the same doubt. So our point is:don’t be scared to get your doubts ELUCIDATED.

P.s: Students must consider the fact that no question is stupid; an answer might probably be stupid at times, so it’s better to make it clear and free yourself from ambiguity, and it’s better to be fool for a moment rather than being fool for the rest of your life.
