Literary marmite (vegemite).

If you come across a rule that you don’t understand does it occur to you that you have come across a teacher who doesn’t know how to explain it to you?
Or do you give up?
Heck lady/Mister…buy a different book! Go to a different class. Look at a different tutorial online. You do realise that teachers aren’t one size fits all?

Not so much.
Don’t be so quick to let that rattler go.
You can understand it.
Approach it from another direction.
