Would you please elaborate on this?

I tried a few videos on YouTube but still haven't got the idea.

OK. Suppose I want to make this point: "Some questions are good and some questions are really stupid."

I make the point by giving examples of good questions and stupid questions.

Do fish get thirsty?

Some rhetorical questions are good:

Do you think that money grows on trees?
