    So, I was trying to revise by looking at some past papers and for one of the questions discussing how the human activities affect the amount and speed of water flowing in a river channel, it didn't give me a clear answer. The answer purely said "L3 concentrate on the channel with emphasis on amounts (Q) and velocity (V). [8–10]" So what I don't understand is when it says the amounts does it mean that I should be able to name a river and say however many mm of water or does it purely mean I can say that the amount of water has increased or decreased?
    I've found this to be a real problem for me when I've been trying to revise because I never fully understand if it's something that I need to know or whether it's not asking for me about what I'm thinking about.

    Thanks for any replies

    I would guess that it means that you need to say the volume and speed of water in the river and how much it has increased / decreased. I'm doing AQA A level geography and the case study questions are normally quite obvious - " name a river you have studied and then talk about (blank) related to it." so I guess you don't need to talk about a specific river unless they've named one in the question. But I agree the mark schemes can be a bit confusing sometimes - just wish they'd put down points you need to get marks sometimes instead of the complicated level marked gobbledegook.
