How would you answer this question - ' Evaluate the role of tides and currents in the development of coastal landforms and landscapes ?'.
I am finding struggling to understand the word Evaluate in this question and the role of tides and currents. Also, how may marks would tis question be.
I would really appreciate everyone's help. Thank You

evaluate is very similar to 'assess' where you basically need to rank the factors by saying which is the most important one and which is the least. It would be 12 marks in an AS paper but 20 in A2.

I would answer it by saying that tides and currents are important in the development of coastal landforms but not as important as other factors such as the geology and lithology of the area, the weather (in order for weathering and mass movement to take place) and if there are any coastal management strategies are in place.
In the conclusion you should say which is the most important factor and why
