 Can you help me with English please?

The instructor went on to explain that I had not thought out my paper clearly.

1. What does "went on" mean in this case?

2. What is the difference between "think" and "think out" in meaning exactly.

Thank you!

    1. Continued

    2. "Think out" is a synonym for "considered" or "analyzed".

    think out is a phrasal verb. If you think something out, you consider all the aspects and details of it before doing anything or making a decision.

    went on = proceeded to

    went on = continued

    think is correct. "think out" is redundant. An adjective for think out would be "consider" or "plan".
