What is the difference between "contrast" and "compare" when used at the start of a question?

Contrast requires an answer to comment on the differences only whereas, compare requires the answer to comment on the similarities and/or differences.

Please refer to the ‘Command word’ section in the AS & A Level 9700 Biology syllabus here.
