What is the difference between "state" and "suggest" when used at the start of a question?

State implies a simple answer that requires no, or little, explanation whereas suggest implies that there is no unique answer or that a candidate is expected to apply knowledge to a novel situation.

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