Hi

I am writing an illustrated report on cell biology and one of the sections asks me to show that I understand how stem cells differ from normal/abnormal cells by:

• Discussing the selected characteristics of living cells.
• Compare and contrast prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, and explain the impact that viruses have on them.
• Discuss eukaryotic sub-cellular structure and organelles.

With the instruction to 'discuss' I've looked it up and it means to create an argument, so I must have a paragraph with for and against points but for the first point "Discuss the selected characteristics of living cells" I am a little confused with how I'm supposed to create an argument?

Please could someone help? Maybe I've interested 'discuss' in the wrong way?

Thanks in advance

I think here they just mean to talk over the different characteristics, rather than create an argument. Good luck!

Study Help is supposed to be collaborative and open - so everyone can benefit from it. It would be great if you could offer to help the OP on the public forum, rather than by private message

Yes, you are 'creating an argument' that stem cells do differ from normal/abnormal cells. To make this argument, you need to select appropriate evidence from those subheadings. Remember than a discussion should end with a short and snappy conclusion.
