Is silence answer to every question?

“Is silence answer to every question?” Asks someone on Quora. It made me think on the lines of ‘ignorance being a bliss‘.

Let’s take the syringe way. Every question’s first answer is always a silence. When you don’t know the answer, you don’t really know what the question means, the first ever answer, is nothing but the silence.

Why I took a syringe analogy is that before using a syringe, we beat it twice or thrice to test if the needle supports the flow. Likewise, before answering it we confirm if we know anything relevant to that question that is asked. Otherwise, the best thing to do is to keep mum when you aren’t really sure of what to answer.

So, what do you think of this? Is silence really the answer to all the questions in the world?
