A good cross-examiner will only ask questions that he knows the answer to and which will yield a yes or no answer. However, a witness has the right to explain his answer.
In redirect examination, the attorney who called the witness will try to undo any damage caused by the cross examination. The opposing counsel will then have the right to re-cross. This is similar to cross-examination.
