Person with magnifying glass.

It is always important to read the task carefully in order to find out what the task wants you to write about. Let us therefore look at some of the key terms that are often used: explain, comment on, show and compare. (Discuss is more often used on the long answer task.)

In small groups, talk about the differences between the three terms: explain, comment on and compare. Then try to summarize your suggestions in the grid below.
