Hi Logician,

When you understand the point, you understand a particular fact, idea or situation.

hi Logician

"the point" means the whole idea.

for me,
to take the hint means clue to understand the main/whole message.
the speech/talk/words are just part of that.

understand the point is the answer because it's different from all of them.
speech/talk/words--all means the same thing
...hehehe, LOL!
