not their roles but like a comparison of their structures with their roles.

A motor neurone’s main cell body is at the end of the neurone, whereas in a sensory neurone it is often located outside attached to the axon.

In motor neurones the axon is longer than in sensory.

i suggest you take a look at the picture of a sensory and motor neurone and you’ll know what I’m talking about

yeah thats what I understand but what I don't get is why? I can its because their roles require for them to have different structures but how would I be specific?

Oh sorry I didn’t read the full thing, you need a comparison with roles.

For motor neurone vs sensory neurone’s cell
Body, the sensory neurone has a cell body attached on the outside because sometimes the cell body is located near to the stimulus, and other times they are all situated in a cluster together in the spine called the ganglion. The motor neurone simply collects the impulses and transmits it to the effector, and hence it’s cell body is at one end.

As for length, I do not know why I’m afraid
