Strengthen vs Must be True

I am having a hard time distinguishing between Strengthen and Must be True questions even after re-watching the video and going through the flashcards. Is there a way to distinguish between the two?

@madelinealbrit1 Must be true questions are just that - they MUST be true or else the argument falls apart. If you were to negate them, the argument would fail.

Strengthen questions don't necessarily have to be true. They just help the argument. Some help a little, others go so far as to make the argument whole. But they don't HAVE to be true.
