Illustrate – Give examples
To remember what illustrate means, use the following mnemonic:
Do you want some illustrations? (Illustrate). Here we give you some examples.
Note: "illustrate" might be used in one of two contexts - i.e. illustrate how something happened or how something works in writing; or draw a diagram or representation to explain something. In some cases maybe both approaches are required. The way the question is phrased by the exam board should make clear what is required.
