 Part 1. Question is not clear.
Logarithm and Exponents are inverse of each other.
   Exponents are repeated multiplication.
   P=  X ^n = X . X . X . X . X.
     x - quantity that is going to be multiplied by itself, is called base, n is number that a quantity is being multiplied is called Exponents.
    Logarithms are opposite :   Log n P = X   means  P = n X
   In exponential functions variable is the base
   In Logarithm functions  Variable is the Exponent.


I think the first question is pretty clear.  It's just that no one can tell Crystal which one she finds the easiest or the most difficult.  That's something she has to answer for herself.
