Synonyms of "Distinguish" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between distinguish and classify and differentiate ?
A: 1) Differentiate - to describe the differences between two objects. - when this word is used, what is important are the differences between the objects. Example 1: Q: Differentiate between a basketball and a soccer ball. A: A basketball is orange, while a soccer ball is black and white. Example 2: People with red-green color blindness cannot differentiate between red and green. In example 1: what's important are the differences between the two balls. In example 2: what's important is how the two colors look the same to a color blind person. 2) Distinguish - to separate things based on their differences. Unlike "differentiate," what's more important here are the objects being compared. - distinguish is also used to highlight a special quality of something. Example 3: The exam distinguishes basic learners from advanced learners. Example 4: I have trouble distinguishing between the kanji 持 and 特. In example 3: what's important is how different learners are separated because of their differences. The sentence does not say anything about the differences between basic and advanced learners. In example 4: what's important is how 持 and 特 look similar to me, and how I can sometimes mistake one from the other. The sentence does not say anything about the actual differences between the two kanji. (Note: sometimes, distinguish and differentiate can both be used: "People with red-green color blindness cannot distinguish between red and green." is also common.) 3) Classify - to group things based on their differences - what's important is the grouping, not the objects in the group. Example 5: I classified the colors as either dark or light. Example 6: One way to classify kanji is by their number of strokes. Example 7: We use the entrance exam to classify applicants into English classes with different levels.
