command words in questions

If a question says “Identify” or “List”, do I need to explain why?

I’m very concerned about it… it seems that I just need to write a short answer with no explanation, but I’m afraid I won’t get full score…

Does anyone know that??


I would use the time allocation as a guide, if we have 1 minute - then I’m gonna list them and move on. If it’s something like 10 minutes then I’d reconsider … though I don’t see an ‘Identify’ or ‘List’ type question taking up 10 minutes.

^^Same. I would definitely look at the point value before thinking about answering the question.
