Expanded original post to the best of my ability:

I am going to ask you to consider the differences and similarities between two words. One word I want you to consider is the word Exist. The other word I want you to consider is the word Real.

(These two words are similar to each other but also seem to have some distinctions as well that make them useful as distinct words in various contexts where one word would fit whereas the other word would not fit well.

But as they share so much in common as concepts, there is a zone where they could have the same meaning or they could have distinct meanings. It is a zone where the similarities and differences between them is difficult to discern and so we end up with situations where attempting to comprehend the propositional logic is far from obvious)

In the following two pairs of phrases, attempt to determine what is being asked and determine how to answer to the best of your ability.

1)
a. Are all things that exist also real?
b. Are all things that are real also exist?

2)
a. Is the mind real?
b. Does the mind exist?
