    what除了可以當作「疑問代名詞」等外,可以當作「帶先行詞的關係代名詞」,用來引導一個「名詞子句」當受詞。這時what = the thing that。但that沒有這個功能,只能當作「指示代名詞」「關係代名詞」或「從屬連接詞」,當作關係代名詞時,是形容詞子句當作「修飾語」用,前面需要有一個「先行詞」。但本句沒有先行詞,需要使用一個「帶先行詞的關係代名詞」,帶出名詞子句當作動詞learned的受詞,所以應該用what:

    The peasant learned what many others never understand. = The peasant learned the thing that many others never understand.

    The peasant learned----subject + vt

    (what) many others never understand---------the object treated as a dependent adj clause,qualifying "peasant".A longer clause is placed at the end of sentence with the purpose to balance the subject of a sentence;i.e.the relative balance of end-object.

    For subject + vi----+ (preposition (+ it) clause=(to it)----then "that " is used. eg:-vi=agree ; must see ; decided ; worry ;etc.

    Hence for learned =vt.-----then "what" is used.
