What does “ appoint ” mean in the sentence ?
A: It's not "appoint" like the verb, it's "a point", as in they think they're getting to a place or a stage where they can understand. When you first face a problem, you start in a "place" of not understanding what is going on. As you continue working through the problem, you "move" to a place where you understand more and more until you're finally at a "place" where you understand. So this person is at a "place" or a "point" where they're beginning to understand the problem.
