    "However, in choosing the question, students need to take the following into account:

    Is the issue and related question one which has promoted debate and differences of interpretation amongst historians?"

    So how do I find the differing interpretations that promote debate?
    How did you find them?
    thanks

    Just do some research. once you know the question is not settled then you cna look to see what different people think.

    They might be different nationalities, different decades, different positions/ witnesses or they just might differ in how they view he same facts.

    If you research and read several accounts you can spot the factual differences and difference of emphasis. You can only id who these are and what they say by understanding toe core event and then looking at different viewpoints.

    Thats one of the key aspects of studying history plus being able to form your own view.
