Religious studies A level religious experience

Anyone have any idea how they’d answer the question- evaluate the claim ‘Visions are easier to understand than mystical experiences’
I have absolutely no idea

Talk about why visions are easier to understand (clearly definable, cannot be misinterpreted) and why they aren’t easier to understand (may not be clear as to what they are trying to convey) in one paragraph then do the same for mystical experiences (direct sense of divine) (may be ineffable and so unclear)

Then do summary paragraph which aligns with the thesis giving your conclusion as to which is easier to understand and why, in the context of providing knowledge of a higher power

Ps. I sat my RE A level last year so I’m not too sure as to the specifics of each type of experience
