i am still not sure what objective means

our history teacher told us we have to talk about 

- how accurate the representations are

- how complete 

and

- how objective

but i am not sure on what objective means in that context

Complete-If the source is lacking a perspective

Accurate-use your own knwoledge to porve that some of the data is inaccurate/accurate e.g.conditions were harsh for police, i know this because 'police would have to patrol seven days a week'

Objective-if there is a bias to a particular source, e.g. written by a satirical magazine and therfore it would ridicule policing because it reflects public opinion
