Example: The FDA does help protect the American people by reviewing the side effects of drugs; however, the FDA should make this process faster so people with severe medical problems can use the newest medicines. Meaning: Show similarities and differences of items Meaning: Make judgments about information = Your Opinion Compare and Contrast Statements Evaluation Statements
