Can someone go through the exact differences for Psychology questions when it comes to key terms in the question; Outline, Discuss, Explain.

For example, which of those require you to talk about both AO1 and AO3?

Outline ≔ give a rough description (AO1)
Explain ≔ give a reason for why a certain phenomenon is the case (AO1, unless your "explanation" is more like evaluation in practice, i.e. "explain the strengths of..." etc.)
Discuss ≔ give a longer answer with an evaluation; this is AO2/3.

Thank you! I'm assuming Describe is just AO1 as well right? For example, if the question was "Describe the Multi Store Model", would you just have to talk about the AO1 and leave out the evaluations?
