There are many cases where Apple will ask you to answer security questions were saved in your Apple account. For example:

1. Example 1 - Assume that you haven't logged in to your Apple ID account for a long time. If you try to log in to your apple ID account at https://appleid.apple.com/, you will be asked to answer your security questions right after you entered your password.

You are frustrated because you think that you password is good enough to allow you to login. But Apples does not think so. Apple wants to double check your identity if you have not used accessed your account for a while.

2. Example 2 - Assume that you have logged in successfully. If you go to your profile and try to change your password, you will be asked to answer your security questions before Apple displays the change password screen.

You are frustrated because you think that you should be allowed to do any thing in your profile. But Apples does not think so. Apple wants to double check your identity if you are trying to change security related settings.
